9th Annual South Farm Research Center Showcase

For the ninth year, South Farm Research Center will be hosting the South Farm Showcase on Sept. 26. Admission is free and events are scheduled for the whole family from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m at the center south of Columbia operated by the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources (CAFNR) at the University of Missouri.
Exhibits will be set up across South Farm, offering visitors a chance to milk a cow, pet a goat, get face-to-face with reptiles, play with a baby pig, talk with a falconer and watch a parade of horses and mule team. Several educational opportunities also will be around throughout the day for homeowners and landowners from gardening tips to energy-efficient ideas for the home.
Enjoy the lush grass fields managed by staff and students while taking a run around the bases at the turf farm's baseball field or sinking a putt on the golf greens. MU turf specialists also will be on hand to answer questions and offer ways to make your lawn the best in the neighborhood.
Experts from the MU Master Gardener Program also will be available to chat with the public about common plant problems, the right plants for the right spot and any other questions aspiring green thumbs may have. MU forestry specialists also will be on hand demonstrating a log-cutting sawmill and available to answer any arboreal questions.

When: 09/26/2015 (10:00 am - 4:00 pm)

Where: South Farm Research Center: 3600 East New Haven Road Columbia, MO. 65201
