Clayton Livestock Research Center

To be the premier feedlot research center in the United States.

Research Focus

Scientists at the Clayton Livestock Research Center conduct research on shipping protocols for cattle, particularly evaluating the health and performance of newly received cattle and nutrition and management from feedlot to slaughter. Other research involves irrigated pastures and native grasslands, including grazing and stocking densities on locoweed-infested pastures.
