University to close cattle programs

MONROE, La. (AP)--The University of Louisiana at Monroe will likely end its cattle breeding and fattening programs at the end of the calendar year following the sale of 114 cows recently.

The ULM Foundation is also in the process of deciding the future of the cattle programs' home. The 505-acre Johnson Farm in eastern Monroe has been struggling to make a profit.

The farm, which the university leased, was turned over to the foundation earlier this year at the request of the university.

Jeffrey Cass, the dean of ULM's college of arts and sciences, said the farm was returned to the foundation because we could no longer afford to run it.

Don Skelton, executive director of the ULM Foundation, said several companies and individuals have already expressed interest in the land.
