Personnel

ARDEC has 14 full-time staff members to manage all operations and facilities. In addition, students are hired year-round to help with day-to-day livestock and farm/field operations.

There are scientists based at the University who provide research leadership and support for some of the programs carried out at this Center. Cooperating departments include Animal Sciences, Bioagricultural Sciences and Pest Management, Horticulture and Landscape Architecture, and Soil and Crop Sciences. In addition, we join in cooperative efforts with Extension Specialists and Natural Resource Conservation Service Scientists.
