Researchers look at unique aspects of grazing wheat pasture

A metal sign reading “Wheat Pasture Research” sits atop the entrance to the Marshall Wheat Pasture Research Unit just outside of Marshall, Okla. Beyond this simple gate, for 25 years, Oklahoma State University faculty have cooperated across departments at this one-of-a-kind facility. They work together to conduct research benefitting the Oklahoma wheat pasture stocker cattleman and wheat producer. With about 22.5 million acres of wheat planted in the Southern Great Plains, the research they conduct has far-reaching benefits.

In the beginning, Gerald Horn, professor in the Department of Animal Science, worked with faculty in Agronomy and Agricultural Economics and the Oklahoma Agricultural Experiment Station administration to get funding for the research unit. The goal was to focus on the dual purpose of wheat and to find answers for stockers that would bring economic benefits to their rural communities.
