A herd of Angus, Simmental and Simmental- Angus crossbreds are maintained at the Cow-Calf Teaching and Research Unit near the SDSU campus. Cattle from this herd are used for teaching, research, and extension activities. In addition to use in the classroom, cattle are used for the annual SDSU Little International, field days, and numerous 4-H, FFA, and other educational events. Research projects include reproductive physiology, creep feeding, and cow nutrition studies.
