Marshall Wheat Pasture Research Unit

Marshall Wheat Pasture Research Unit

In 1989, the department established the Expanded Wheat Pasture Research Unit with major assistance from a special grant from CSRS-USDA. This is a unique resource unlike any other in the country.

The unit consists of 385 acres of wheat pasture, 42 acres of perennial grasses and two native grass pastures near Marshall (30 miles west of Stillwater). The area is leased from two landowners and can be managed as 18 to 20 wheat pastures that allow for replication of experimental treatments. It is equipped with a Mesonet weather station, cattle receiving, handling and weighing facilities and feed storage areas.  Approximately 250 steers are grazed each winter from November to April. The unit is managed by the Department of Animal Science but also hosts wheat breeding plots from the Department of Plant and Soil Science.
