Student-Managed Farm (SMF) - Livestock Research SMF
During the first year, the team expanded their herd from 41 to 91 head. The team also looked for a new herd sire to improve the herd’s hybrid vigour.
As with the other SMF units, students make more of the decisions with guidance from faculty and farm staff.
There are nine leadership positions in this unit:
- a general manager
- a finance manager
- a nutritionist
- a public relations manager
- a range and forage manager
- a health manager
- a sustainability and stewardship manager
- a production records manager
- a secretary.
