Academics

The Smith Livestock Merchandising Center serves as the hub of animal science livestock labs. Throughout the semester, hands on livestock handling and shoot-side labs are held at this facility. Here students have the opportunity to participate in low stress cattle handling, herd health, estrus synchronization, and artificial insemination.

 

The livestock center also hosts some 4-H and FFA events as well as annual purebred Angus and Hereford sales and a commercial replacement heifer sale. It contains a permanent cell ring, 50+ permanent pens as well as bleacher seating for 200 people. Making this one of the most elite sale facilities in West Tennessee.
