Cows

Eastern Colorado Research Center

The ECRC began as a 3,760-acre ranch in 1952. After CSU purchased the ranch, we have built it into a research facility boasting over 35 fenced pastures of native and seeded rangeland. We have enclosed working facilities including bunk space, chutes and scales and 22 feedlot pens for managing livestock research.

Research and Engagement

Historically, we have been engaged in beef cattle reproduction and nutrition research. Our contributions include numerous nutrition studies on reproductive health and optimizing performance on grazing and animal productivity. We work closely with CSU’s Department of Animal Sciences and industry partners to share our findings with regional and multi-state cattle producers. We welcome visitors to tour our facility and discuss our research programs.

Clients wanted for Landscape Design and Contracting student capstone projects

Students in CSU's Landscape Design and Contracting program are seeking clients to partner with on projects for their capstone course. The post Clients wanted for Landscape Design and Contracting student capstone projects appeared first on College of Agricultural Sciences.

Groundbreaking study on decomposing microbes could help transform forensic science

For the first time, researchers have identified what appear to be a network of approximately 20 microbes that universally drive the decomposition of animal flesh, a finding that has implications for forensic science. The post Groundbreaking study on decomposing microbes could help transform forensic science appeared first on College of Agricultural Sciences.
