Beef Unit

Beef Unit


Facilities

The main beef facility is located near the junction of Interstate 29 and 19th Avenue North. The facility serves as the winter headquarters for the herd while the Ekre Grassland Preserve near Kindred, ND provides summer grazing for the cowherd. The majority of the cowherd represents crossbred Angus genetics. Purebred Angus, Simmental and Shorthorn herds are maintained to demonstrate genetic diversity for classroom and outreach use.


Herd Info

The NDSU beef herd was established during the 1890's and now consists of 250 breeding age females. The herd supports the mission of research, outreach and teaching by providing quality cattle for those specific purposes.
