Western Kentucky University purchased the farm in 1934. The 780 acre farm is utilized by students for classes, labs, and a place to gain experience in their area of interest by working for one of the farms many operations. Livestock enterprises consist of dairy, beef, swine, equine, goats and back grounding cattle, each of which provide a solid background for both Animal Science and Pre-Veterinary careers. Additionally, a variety of crops are produced including corn, soybeans, wheat, grass hay, and alfalfa. This portion of the farm provides hands on experience for Agronomy, Plant Science, Horticulture and Turf Management careers as well as those interested in the various aspects of Soil Science, such as soil testing and soil judging.

The farm is also used for USDA research, faculty trials, and corn and soybean trials. The farm is a tool used by a wide variety of students pursuing careers in all aspects of agriculture such as Agribusiness, Ag Education, Ag Mechanics, and composting. The farm is located about 15 minutes from campus. We encourage you to explore the website and learn more about the wonderful opportunities in Agriculture at WKU!
