The Beef Unit Field Day will feature updates on research programs conducted by animal and dairy sciences faculty members on topics such as stocker cattle health and management, reproduction, nutrition and genetics. Updates to the breeding and management programs also will be highlighted. Immediately after lunch, alumni from the Block and Bridle and Judging teams will meet.

At the MSU baseball game that afternoon, the Mississippi Cattlemen's Association will host Beef Day at the Ballpark.
