Willard Sparks Beef Research Center
The center is located west of campus. The center is a development through an investment of more than $2.3 million dollars, dedicated in 1998.
Herd size varies throughout the year, but our facility can hold up to 980 head of beef cattle.
Our research feedlot allows us to perform important, industry relevant experiments. The center has multiple pens and Insentec feeders and waterers, which are used to conduct research on different types of feed, sustainability, wellness and drought management.
