University Farms

Cooperative Research maintains research farms which function as facilities in support of research and extension activities. Primarily, they are field laboratories. The farms have assisted in the support of beef cattle, sheep, goat, swine, plant and soil science, and environmental science research, as well as a number of extension activities.

These farms provide facilities and outdoor laboratories to conduct research, meeting rooms and other facilities to support extension and research activities, and outdoor laboratory opportunities for teaching. Our meeting rooms are also available for use by public entities.

 A major operation of the our farms is to raise the feedstuffs needed to support the research animals and to sell the excess production to support other research activities.  The farms are also used by the teaching component of Lincoln University Cooperative Extension and Research for laboratory activities. The impact of our farms is dependent upon the research and extension programs using the farm facilities. Thousands of people visit the farm for activities yearly.
