Goodale Research and Teaching Farm

The College's 840-hectare research farm, along with its pastures, cropland and hay fields, supports more than 230 head of beef cattle and specialized livestock year round. As well, researchers regularly bring groups of heifers and horses on to the farm for specific projects.

Most of the farm's livestock participate in animal health studies that are conducted by basic science and clinical researchers at the WCVM. Examples of research activities include studies on basic reproduction patterns in bison, reproduction projects in cattle and horses, investigations of management techniques for cattle, and equine vaccination studies.
