Where Our Work Begins
Our undergraduate and graduate programs, research projects and outreach activities are operated from seven different facilities around the Auburn University campus.
Ag Heritage Park, a joint venture of the College of Agriculture and Agricultural Alumni Association, is located on about 30 acres at the southwest corner of Samford Avenue and Donahue Drive. The park pays tribute to Alabama’s farmers and agricultural sector while serving as a gathering place for students, faculty, alumni and friends throughout the year.
The Stanley P. Wilson Beef Teaching Center is located on campus near the intersection of Shug Jordan Pkwy and Wire Road. Visitors are welcome daily between 8 am and 3 pm. Tours should be arranged in advance with the farm manager.
The Swine Research and Education Center (SREC) is a farrow-to-finish facility constructed in 2006. The center is under the management of Brian Anderson. Student employees are involved in all aspects of production, from breeding and delivery of piglets through feeding and care of hogs bound for processing at the Lambert-Powell Meats Laboratory.
Named for Ann S. Upchurch, Upchurch Hall is home to the Department of Animal Sciences at Auburn University. The original building was constructed in 1929, and an additional wing was completed in the 1960s. Faculty and staff offices and research laboratories are spread throughout the three floors.
The Auburn University Horse Center is home to the equine teaching, research, extension and performance activities in the Department of Animal Sciences. The center is also home to the Auburn University NCAA women’s equestrian team for daily practices and competitions.
The Lambert-Powell Meats Lab is a state-of-the-art facility supporting a variety of activities in the Department of Animal Sciences. Several undergraduate courses utilize the unit each semester for demonstrations and hands-on laboratories. Faculty and graduate students conduct research in the areas of meat quality, meat processing and food safety.
Ham Wilson Livestock Arena is a multi-use facility under the management of the Department of Animal Sciences. While the livestock shows have moved to other facilities near campus, the building is still used for classes, extension programs and special events. Ham Wilson is located on the corner of Lem Morisson Drive and Donahue Drive, adjacent to Ag Heritage Park.
