BATESVILLE, Ark. -- Three-quarters of a century ago, the University of Arkansas changed the land outside Batesville to create the Livestock and Forestry Research Station. On Oct. 4, the place known as the “Batesville Station,” will mark is anniversary with an open house.

“The successes of our livestock and forestry research projects would not be possible without support from the people we serve,” said Don Hubbell, the station’s resident director.

The Open House runs from 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m., with Dr. Mark Cochran, University of Arkansas System Vice President for Agriculture, as the keynote speaker.

Tours can be arranged for anyone interested in seeing the “300 Days of Grazing” project, stocker calf research areas, cow calf research areas, or examples of the forestry research areas.
