R.T. Wright Farm

The 448-acre R.T. Wright Farm, located 4 miles north of campus adjacent to Hwy. 71,  provides opportunities for Northwest students in agricultural sciences majors to gain profession-based experience with beef, swine, dairy, and sheep enterprises as well as row and forage crops. The farm is named after R.T. Wright, former chairperson of the Department of Agricultural Sciences and a recognized leader in agricultural education.

Located at the front door of the farm, the Agricultural Learning Center (ALC) allows producers, consumers and all Northwest students to come together to discuss, learn, and strategize solutions for agriculture and food systems. The 29,500 square foot multipurpose facility houses classrooms, laboratories, exposition, and office spaces designed to support the efforts of the School of Agricultural Sciences.
