It is summer on the MSU Campus and that can mean only one thing: Ag Expo. Ag Expo is Michigan’s largest farm industry show and this summer marks the 31st year of the event. The University Archives & Historical Collections will have a booth in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources tent. Our theme this is year “Preserving Family History” and we will have handouts and displays on that topic.
Ag Expo is held from July 20-22, 2010. It is located off Mt. Hope Road in East Lansing near the corner of Farm Lane. For more information about Ag Expo, including times and directions, visit the website at http://www.agexpo.msu.edu.
Across the street from Ag Expo in the MSU Pavilion on Wednesday, July 21 will be the Great Dairy Adventure. The Great Dairy Adventure is aimed at the young and the young at heart who wish to learn more about milk, cheese, and dairy. It runs from 9:30am-3:00pm. The UAHC booth will showcase the history of dairy at MSU and will include information on significant individuals such as G. Malcolm Trout, the Father of Homogenization. The handouts from the UAHC will focus on learning games for kids.
