Additional Information

With more than 500 undergraduates, enrollment in animal and rangeland sciences at OSU is at an all-time high and is nearly four times what it was in the 1990s.  OSU continues to have the greatest variety of livestock research farms of any animal sciences department in the West.

The new facility is named for James Edmund Oldfield, an OSU animal nutrition scientist who discovered the role of selenium in eliminating white muscle disease, a degenerative disease of cardiac and skeletal muscles in sheep and other ruminants.

For more information, please see the College of Agricultural Sciences website.
