MURFREESBORO — About 350 people attended the annual Ag Field Day at the MTSU Dairy and MTSU Farm in Lascassas on Sept. 27.
Many people — including lots of children — saw the milking process that takes place in the milking parlor. They also toured the rest of the farm — a new dairy calf facility, the student garden and nursery, the beehives and apiary (“honey house”) and saw how alfalfa has been established.
School of Agribusiness and Agriscience senior Boomer Harris shared about the farm’s progress for the past year. Tennessee Department of Agriculture information officer Tom Womack represented Commissioner Julius Johnson, who was unable to attend.
The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching has recognized MTSU for its outstanding curricular engagement, community outreach and partnerships.
