WCTresearch

The Agriculture Research Center began in 1969, when 274.36 acres were purchased from Billy and Sophie Roberts. In 1983, 216 acres were added to the farm to bring the total to 490 acres. In 1989, the Swine and Poultry barns were built. In April of 1999, the farm was renamed the Walter C. Todd Beef Farm. In 2004, the farm was renamed the Walter C. Todd Agricultural Research Center. The face of the farm has changed drastically over the years, but the purpose has remained the same: To provide quality hands on instruction to undergraduate students, to provide a place to conduct graduate student driven research and to provide services to the local producers, FFA and 4-H members.
