The majority of receiving studies done here have primarily focused on how calf health correlates to overall performance during the starter and growing phases. Several studies have been conducted here looking at how timing of vaccinations and implants alter immunological function and performance of newly received high-risk calves. Additionally, studies have been conducted regarding which anti-microbials have the greatest benefits in regards to reducing morbidity and mortality rates and improving performance. The research center also conducts large pen finishing studies. Several medicated feed and implant studies have been conducted here. The facility also has several fistulated cattle which can be used for digestion studies.
