The College of Agricultural and Life Sciences holds field days and special events at the Agricultural Research Stations each year. Some field days are aimed at a broad spectrum of local farmers. The speakers at such events focus on the major crops and livestock produced in the area. Other events are more specialized. They concentrate on a single type of enterprise – apples, grapes, turfgrass, potatoes, woodlots, and beef cows, to name a few – and draw growers from across the state and beyond. Not all are aimed specifically at farmers. There are special events for a variety of interests including urban gardeners, beekeepers, and for people interested in restoring native prairies.
You don’t have to wait for a field day to visit any of the Agricultural Research Stations. The stations have a year-round open-door policy. Visitors are encouraged to stop by any time, whether it’s to get immediate answers to a pressing problem, or to take a tour of the station. Please contact the station to be sure someone will be available to visit with you.
We are in the process of compiling our 2015 Field Day List. Please check back at a later date.
