Beef Cattle Research and Teaching Center
NDSU's main beef facility is located near the junction of Interstate 29 and 19th Avenue North. The facility serves as the winter headquarters for the NDSU cowherd while the Ekre Grassland Preserve southwest of Kindred, ND, provides summer grazing for the herd. Angus, Simmental, and crossbred herds are maintained to demonstrate genetic diversity for classroom and outreach use.
The NDSU beef herd was established during the 1890s and now consists of 250 breeding-age females. The herd supports the mission of research, outreach and teaching by providing quality cattle for those specific purposes.
