USDA forage study facility expanding

Ground has been broken in Woodward, Okla., for a $13.7 million expansion and upgrade of an Agricultural Research Service facility for forage and livestock.

The three-phase expansion of the ARS Southern Plains Range Research Station will increase the facility's laboratory, greenhouse and office space.

“Since its inception in 1913, the Southern Plains Range Research Station has conducted studies that have improved the way forage has been grown and managed in this part of the nation,” said Edward B. Knipling, acting ARS administrator. “This increase in research space and, eventually, in the scientific staff will make the facility an even greater asset to the livestock industry.”
