As the final issue celebrating the past five years of the the Buff Brief,

we are highlighting

the facilities that contribute to students learning in our College!

Dates To Remember

March 29: Good Friday - No Classes

Feedlot Expansion:

USDA Rural Development Education Center

The Research Feedlot has served WT over the last 40 years, but will soon be getting an update!

The Research Feedlot expansion will be renamed

as the USDA Rural Development Education Center and will expand another 40 acres.

This expansion will include 40 70-head pens and 90 10-head pens for research purposes.

Graduate Student Housing

New housing is in the works

for graduate students who live on site 

at several WT AG animal units,

including the Nance Ranch, 

the Research Feedlot,

and the Horse Center.

Greenhouse Expansion

A preliminary proposal for a new greenhouse of 30,000 sq. ft. – estimated cost $10,000,000!

The greenhouse plan anticipates expandable bays, 10 offices, two large classrooms, 

a research lab and walk-in drying oven. Also proposed is a soil teaching lab, 

which would include a soil and plant grinding room with bay door/air filtration system 

climate controlled soil storage room and space for tools and equipment!

(This is not the actual greenhouse, just a representation.)

Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center

The new facility is under construction to the east of the Charles W. Graham DVM

Texas A&M Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory (TVMDL) building.

Two-thirds of the funding for the multi-million-dollar facility will come from the Texas A&M University system, about $10 to $13 million will be raised through fundraising.

The construction completion is anticipated in the summer of 2025.
