The Cummings School Farm

The Cummings School Farm takes up just over 200 acres of the 594-acre veterinary school campus. In use since 1980, the farm raises beef cattle, sheep, dairy replacement heifers, laying hens, pigs, corn and hay. The animals are used extensively in teaching at the Cummings School in a variety of core and elective courses for DVM candidates, veterinary technician students and prospective students in the Adventures in Veterinary Medicine program. While most of the animals are raised for food and fiber production, certain species are involved in research projects and are provided to other research institutions.
