West Farm Complex

The Murray State University West Farm Complex is home to the University’s certified Angus herd. The herd was established in 2001 through the generosity of ranches in Missouri, Kentucky, and Tennessee. Donations included award-winning stock, embryos, and semen. This herd has become an important part of our farm and serves as a learning tool for our Animal Science and AHT/Pre-Vet programs.

In addition, the West Farm also provides space for forage and grazing studies, as well as agronomy research plots.  BASF, Garst, and the University of Kentucky have partnered with MSU to conduct seasonal research trial involving corn, soybeans, and dark-fired and air-cured tobacco.  School of Agriculture students are involved in many aspects of these research trials, and have the opportunity to study, analyze, and present data that is collected.
