A Fresh Start

The Missouri State University Darr College of Agriculture has recently started a new research project. This study will consist of managing nutrient inputs to enhance the sustainability of forage-based beef systems. We will be using angus-cross cattle. This particular project is funded by the USDA Building Capacity Grant.

The research will be taking place at one of Missouri State’s own facilities, Shealy Farm. This 256-acre farm, located in Fair Grove, Missouri, was donated in 2014. It has been used for numerous accommodations such as housing Missouri State beef cattle and psychology research studies.

There is a large, excited staff working together for this project including four assistant professors, five interns, and one graduate student. The faculty includes Dr. Sarah Lancaster, Dr. Phillip Lancaster, Dr. Will McClain, and Mrs. Nichole Jesse-Busdieker. We have high hopes for the future of this research program.
