During the event’s self-guided tour, participants will be able to learn more about how farmers take care of their animals, protect the environment and produce nutritious food. Breakfast on the Farm attendees will experience how the MSU Beef Research Center staff operates all three segments of the beef supply chain –seedstock, cow/calf and feedlot– in one 300-acre location.
“A lot of what we do is outreach for the community, so we really like the ability to partner with Breakfast on the Farm to bring people to our center to explain what modern beef production is all about,” said Dan Buskirk, faculty coordinator at the MSU Beef Research Center. “There will be experts on hand to help visitors around the farm and answer questions they may have about how their food is produced.”
The MSU Beef Research center staff are excited to share the story of their farm and the story of the Michigan beef industry with Breakfast on the Farm visitors Sept. 15. Print or pick up your tickets to become one of the 85,000 Breakfast on the Farm visitors that have enjoyed learning about modern agriculture first hand.
