The Ag Expo returns to MSU on July 22-24 at the corner of Farm Lane and Mount Hope. The 35th annual event features over 200 commercial farm equipment and supply exhibits and dozens of educational exhibits from MSU departments and programs on the 35-acre main site.
Visitors can learn about stock dog training, animal mortality management, and attend tours at campus research centers on various topics. Other demos and educational sessions will include grain bin, power take-off and auger safety.
The MSU College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) tent will also have hands-on exhibits and learning stations presented by MSU Extension, departments and other college units, and tips by Master Gardeners will be offered daily. The MSU Dairy Store will provide free ice cream to anyone who donates to the CANR Alumni Association Scholarship Fund.
The Ag Expo VIP Breakfast begins at 7 a.m. on July 22, and speakers include Lou Anna Simon, MSU president, and Gov. Rick Snyder. Legislators and agriculture leaders will also attend the breakfast, which will be held in a red-and-white tent near the west gate.
