For the last five years, CAFNR has invited the public to South Farm Research Center for a day of science, discovery and fun for the whole family. This year more than 3,000 people attended the Showcase and experienced hay rides, negotiated corn and straw bale mazes and watched sawmill and wood chopping demonstrations.
Each year many of CAFNR’s research centers host Ag Education days and Field Days. The events expose students to the diverse career opportunities in agriculture, and bring the latest agricultural research to the public.
Family Weekend is a great chance to visit campus, enjoy the Columbia community, spend time with families, take part in the MU student experience and learn more about the University and College. A variety of social and educational events are planned each year.
South Farm supports the research, outreach and teaching missions of animal science, plant science, veterinary science, biology, botany, biochemistry, and other disciplines. The farm is home to the Swine Research Complex, the Beef Research and Teaching Farm, the Turf Center, and the Horse Farm. The farm also supports research and demonstration projects in entomology, poultry, and maize genetics.
Whether they had their hands inside a cow’s stomach or identified potential water-quality issues on the farm, students learned about their potential futures through hands-on experiences and demonstrations Sept. 13 at Bradford Research and Extension Center’s annual FFA Day.
