Scenes from around Thompson Research Center in Spickard, MO.


The mission of the Thompson Research Center is to develop, evaluate and disseminate beef herd management technical information using multidisciplinary approaches. Research is focused on reproductive performance, heifer development, supplementation strategies and animal health factors. Additionally, synchronized breeding for uniform calf crops is being studied, as are techniques for the selection and development of desirable traits through breeding of beef cattle. George Drury donated the land for the Thompson Farm in 1956.
