About the Center

The MSU Beef Cow-Calf Teaching & Research Center operates on 340 acres of land with the main barn located on the corner of Bennett and Beaumont Roads. Labor to run the Center is provided by a manager and student employees. The Center maintains a separate web site, Spartan Beef, with information about current events; visits; teaching, research, and extension activities; cattle sales; and herd pedigrees.

Effective immediately, south campus animal farms are closed to tours and unauthorized visitors to protect the health of dedicated individuals who care for the animals.
