The Eastern Oregon Agricultural Research Center’s mission is to provide the science for sound land and livestock management. Our research programs are unique in the integration of research with management of beef cattle, rangelands, wildlife habitat, watersheds, and forests. EOARC conducts research and provides information for public and private land managers, hay producers, environmental groups and the general public. Our current program includes research on restoration of sagebrush range and juniper-dominated sites, management of invasive weeds, ecology, flood meadows, and beef cattle. Research is also being conducted evaluating the interaction of livestock, wildlife, and the environment.
Our overall program goals are to provide the data that can be used by managers to improve the health of meadow and rangeland, improve the profitability of beef cattle operations, and reduce the level of conflict over land management. We recently held a Beef Industry Tour that discussed new concepts and sustainable approaches on reproductive management and genetics of beef cattle.
Unfortunately, shrinking federal and state budgets have decreased financial support of agricultural research and extension at EOARC, which limits our ability to address the needs of our community and stakeholders. Please consider making a gift of $500, $250, $100, or another amount to EOARC-Burns. Every gift to EOARC-Burns creates positive change and will have an immediate impact.
We greatly appreciate your support!
