Students are able to observe and work with normal animals in a real farm setting. Species include poultry, swine, dairy/beef cattle, small ruminants, and horses. Animals housed within this program are also used for agricultural research. The equine unit was built 2 years ago, the beef facilities were built 1 year ago, and a new parlor and freestall barn will open for the dairy cows this fall.
