Animal Science Educational Farm Overview

yearlings grazing

The Texas A&M University-Commerce Animal Science Educational Farm is situated on approximately 1,300 acres and is located on State Highway 24/50 three and a half miles south of the main campus.

Facilities on the Educational Farm include the Equine Center, Beef Cattle Center, Swine Center, Goat Center and the Farm Shop. The Equine Center provides students with a covered riding arena with 20 stalls for rent, two outdoor riding areas, a small arena with a round pen and large riding arenas. The vast amount of land accessible to the Equine classes gives them the opportunity to trail ride around the beautiful setting of the Farm. Horse boarding for student-owned horses has recently been made available. To learn more about the Equine Center click on the link to the left.

The Beef Cattle Center is the newest facility with construction being completed in the spring of 2010. The facility has several outside holding pens and an excellent working area inside. This facility is used for student training in ultrasound technology, artificial insemination, and cattle management techniques to name a few.

Renovations of the Swine Center were completed in the spring of 2010. A slatted concrete floor and new pens were added to the confined feeding area. The unit also has a farrowing room and a nursery barn where the pigs are transferred after weaning.

The Goat Center is located on 16 acres of land adjacent to the old University Dairy. The barn is equipped with a complete working system and 14, one-acre paddocks for grazing and research.

The Educational Farm is home to Quarter and Thoroughbred horses, purebred Angus and Hereford cattle, a herd of commercial cattle, Boer goats and Yorkshire cross hogs. These animals are used in the “hands-on” training of Animal Science students as well as being used to conduct research.

The Quarter horses are provided for the use of the TAMU-C Equine Show Team.
