The Dickinson Research Extension Center was established by the 1905 North Dakota Legislature as a research location representative of the Missouri Plateau region. The goal was to develop research on crop production for farmers of the region and to improve native and introduced forage crop production for cattle ranchers.

Over the years the Center has grown from the original 160 acres to the current 6,482 acres - 3,259 acres are at the ranch unit north of Dickinson where range and beef research is conducted.

Today, the Dickinson Research Extension Center has a unique blend of staff and programs. The Dickinson Research Extension Center Main Station is located on the northwest corner of State Avenue and Empire Road in west Dickinson.
The Dickinson Research Extension Center Ranch Headquarters is located 22 miles north and 3 miles west of Dickinson, ND or 2miles south and 3 miles west of Manning, ND. A sign marks the turnoff from Highway 22.
