about us 

The Department of Agriculture at Western Kentucky University is part of the Ogden College of Science and Engineering. Classrooms and laboratory facilities for Agriculture are located on the ground, first and second floors of the Environmental Science and Technology Building. The departmental office is in Room 269 of that building.

Our University Farm is located a few miles south of the main campus on HWY 31W. The Farm is 810 acres which includes a Grade A Dairy, a classroom-mechanics laboratory facility, horticulture facilities, a beef handling facility, university beef and horse herds, and crop acreage. The farm serves as a laboratory to deliver "hands-on" educational experiences for our students. The L.D. Brown Agricultural Exposition Center, also located on the Farm, serves as classroom space, as well as a hub for community related agricultural activities. The Expo provides a 315 seat sales arena and a 2,075 seat show arena.

Mission Statement: To prepare students for careers in Agriculture and the Food industries via teaching, applied research and outreach.
