The Kellogg Farm, embedded within the W.K. Kellogg Biological Station (KBS) in Southwest Michigan, was founded in 1928 and is Michigan State University’s largest off campus research farm. The Farm is comprised of 567ha (1,400 acres) of managed agricultural lands for cropping system and dairy research and extension.
Overall management of the Kellogg Farm prioritizes sustainable agriculture, utilizing practices that improve soil quality, sequester greenhouse gases, and reduce nutrient loss. Long term research projects at the Farm, including the Pasture Dairy Center, Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) and Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (GLBREC), provide unique opportunities to examine agriculture from an integrated, whole system perspective.
