Workshops and Presentations for Ag Professionals

''Throughout the year we host professional development workshops and outreach programs designed to inform agricultural professionals, farmers and educators about the pasture dairy’s ongoing research. See the events calendar for upcoming workshops and to learn about past events check out our past workshop page.

Public Open Houses

The Dairy holds open house events throughout the summer. Farm staff, student interns, and volunteers greet visitors and answer questions about management and research at the dairy. During open houses, visitors learn how dairy management in our modern dairy facility impacts cow health, milk production, and the environment, as well as how research at the Pasture Dairy Center can impact Michigan dairy farmers. Open houses are free and no per-registration is required to participate.  See our events calendar for dates and times of upcoming open houses.  All ages and backgrounds are welcome.

Interpretive Area

The observation room is open to visitors Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.  (Closing at 5 p.m. in the winter.) There is no charge for visiting the Pasture Dairy Center robotic milking viewing area.
