Montana State College of Agriculture announces annual summer field day series

From the MSU News Service

BOZEMAN — The Montana State University College of Agriculture and Montana Agricultural Experiment Station will once again host a series of field days this summer at six of the university’s research centers around the state, plus two additional events at campus farms in Bozeman.

“We look forward to our field days every year because of the opportunities they create to interact and share research results with agricultural producers and friends around Montana,” said Sreekala Bajwa, director of the Montana Agricultural Experiment Station and the college’s dean. “Getting to share and receive feedback on research projects helps us to tailor our work to the needs of our state and to foster relationships with our many partners.”

The Montana Agricultural Experiment Station comprises the main station at Bozeman; the Department of Research Centers facilities at Conrad, Corvallis, Creston, Havre, Huntley, Moccasin and Sidney; and the USDA’s Fort Keogh Livestock and Range Research Laboratory in Miles City.

At the events, visitors can meet faculty, learn about ongoing and future research projects, offer feedback, share a meal and tour facilities. Discussion topics will include plant breeding and variety testing, livestock management and production, precision agriculture, irrigation and input management, and more.
