Swine Research and Education Center

Swine Research and Education Center

The swine center was dedicated in 2004 as a new, total confinement facility that features modern waste and odor management technologies, as well as an indoor facility for swine judging. The swine center houses high-quality Yorkshire and crossbred sows, along with commercial pigs used for nutrition research. The herd is known for its outstanding purebreds with numerous national show champions and high-selling boars through the years.

OSU still holds the record for the highest selling purebred boar at auction by a college or university, when in 2001 they sold a Yorkshire boar for $70,000 at a National Type Conference. The OSU herd will show and sell breeding swine at 3-5 national shows each year. The center also uses Animal Science student employees and has housing for 2-4 students. In addition, approximately 100 different visits dot the calendar each year by 4-H, FFA and collegiate livestock teams.
