Welcome to the Arlington Ag Research Station

The Arlington Agricultural Research Station is used by almost all disciplines in the UW-Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences. With well over 2,000 acres, the complex is composed of 14 crop and livestock units. These include the Agronomy, Beef Nutrition, Beef Grazing, Biological Systems Engineering, Emmons Blaine Dairy Center, Entomology, Headquarters, Horticulture, Plant Pathology, Sheep, Soils, Swine, and Veterinary Science units. In addition, the Forestry Department maintains approximately 55 acres of trees for research. Also at the Arlington ARS is the Wisconsin Foundation Seed Program which is crucial to new agronomy crop variety development and seed quality.

There is no single agricultural and natural sciences focus to the station's research mission; rather, the station supports a wide variety of scientific research and agricultural educational activities.
