A herd of purebred Angus and Simmental cows used for teaching, research and extension activities is maintained at the Cow-Calf Teaching and Research Unit near the SDSU campus. Besides use in the classroom, cattle are used for numerous student activities, field days and 4-H, FFA and other educational events. In addition to providing research information and an opportunity for education, this herd provides a stimulus for interactions between students and faculty and an avenue for communication between faculty and producers in the region.
