Animal Nutrition and Physiology Center
The new OSU Animal Nutrition and Physiology Research Center is a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to conducting animal studies related to climate variability, production efficiency and sustainability in the areas of:
- Animal and Human Health
- General well-being
In addition, the center allows OSU students to perform and participate in intensive research projects in combination with applied animal studies at other facilities and makes the university more competitive in garnering research funding.
Innovations at the center include:
- Individual stanchions and group pens to accommodate animals of all sizes.
- Metabolism stalls for the collection of waste and emissions.
- Specialized rooms with total climate control from 25 degrees Fahrenheit to 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
- A surgery room to accommodate large cattle, sheep and swine.
- Wet and dry laboratory spaces.
- A fishery to perform ichthyological research.
- Isolation rooms for livestock research under Biosafety Level 2 conditions.
