Wurdack Research Center

Nestled along the Meramec River near Cook Station in the northeast Ozarks, this Center conducts demonstrations and research in integrated livestock, forages, forestry, agroforestry and wildlife management practices that are economically viable, environmentally sound and sociologically acceptable for the Ozark Region of Missouri. Timber covers most of the acreage, while 260 acres provide the base for forage production, rotational grazing and cattle production. Current research includes programs to improve forage, beef, agroforestry and timber.
