Bill and Alice Nix Farm Day

In the Fall of 2006, the College of Agriculture began a free petting zoo on our farm at our beef barn facility.  In 2023, the Bill and Alice Nix Petting Zoo was renamed to the Bill and Alice Nix Farm Day.  What was once created to allow for an annual interaction between our small amount of visitors and an assortment of animals, has now become a large, highly anticipated, bi-annual event and a staple of our community.
