Our department facilities include over 30 research laboratories on campus, and at local and regional animal research facilities. There are research herds, and flocks of beef and dairy cattle, sheep, and swine housed close to the University. There are additional research units housing beef cattle, sheep, and turkeys located throughout the state.
Research in the department is funded by a multimillion dollar budget derived from support by the Utah Agricultural Experiment Station, and by substantial outside contracts and grants. Cooperation with other departments and research centers of the University, and with federal collaborators enhances the ADVS research and graduate programs. Significant in this regard are the University Center for Integrated Biosystems, the Utah State Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratories, the Laboratory Animal Research Center, the Center for Environmental Toxicology, the Center for the Genetic Improvement of Livestock, and the USDA Poisonous Plant Laboratory.
The ADVS department conducts a broad range of basic and applied research in the areas of:
- Animal health
- Animal nutrition
- Animal reproduction
- Livestock and dairy management
- Molecular genetics
