Welcome to the Arlington Ag Research Station
The Arlington Agricultural Research Station is used by almost all disciplines in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences. The 2,000 acre complex is composed of 14 crop and livestock units. These include the Agronomy, Beef Nutrition, Beef Physiology, Dairy Herd Replacement, Emmons Blaine Dairy Center, Headquarters, Horticulture, Plant Pathology and Entomology, Poultry, Sheep, Soils, Swine, Turkeys, and Veterinary Science units. The Forestry Department maintains approximately 55 acres of trees for research. There is no single focus to the station's research; rather, the station supports a wide cross section of research.
The Wisconsin Foundation Seed Program moved into new facilities on the Station in 1988 after many years at the West Hill Farm in Madison.
