Michigan State University Extension and the MSU Beef Research Center will welcome visitors to Saturday’s Breakfast on the Farm event in Lansing.

The event’s self-guided walking tour runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Sept. 15, with a pancake breakfast featuring Michigan-grown products available until noon.

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.”

Breakfast on the Farm events are free; however, tickets are required to eat breakfast. Tickets are available online and at area businesses.
