The Lake City Research Center includes 810 acres of managed land and 180 beef cows in a geographic area suitable for forage-based livestock enterprises, potato production and bioenergy crop production. The center is a leader in potato breeding and genetics research, with more than 60,000 seedlings grown and evaluated each year. It also supports research on forage and beef production systems that are holistic, sustainable and profitable. The center’s mission is to bring about practical, common-sense solutions to agricultural sustainability obstacles using research- and knowledge-based problem solving with the assistance of industry partners and the community.
