About the DMACC Farm

In addition to the crop ground, the farm also houses a cow/calf operation consisting of 60 pairs and a swine operation consisting of approximately 20 sows. In both livestock operations, the offspring are born on the farm and raised to a market weight with the assistance and insight from students. Rations include grains and forages produced on farm with the exception of small amounts of distiller's grains, vitamins, and minerals. Animals are free of growth implants and antibiotics are used only if medically necessary.
