Greg Zwald, UWRF Laboratory Farm Director, and owner of White Pine Berry Farm discussed the UW-River Falls two laboratory farms. Integral components of students' education, the lab farms host classes in animal sciences, horticulture, crop and soil science, environmental science and agricultural engineering technology.
The College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Science has provided training in the agricultural sciences since 1912. It has earned an outstanding reputation for quality education and service to the people of Wisconsin.

In addition to the production of crops, the laboratory farms support horse, beef and dairy cattle herds, a swine herd and a sheep flock.

Demonstrations and experimental plots are also provided for student use. Cropland and livestock production facilities are used for classroom and hands-on educational purposes. Modern facilities house the animals and are used to demonstrate the relationships between management, nutrition, breeding and the environment.
