About SAREC

The Sustainable Agriculture Research and Extension Center near Lingle was formed in 2002 as the result of combining the Archer Center and Torrington Center. SAREC comprises 1,522 acres of dry land cropland, 349 acres of irrigated cropland, 1,880 acres of rangeland, 19 acres of irrigated organic cropland, 40 acres of dry land organic cropland, a feedlot and a livestock research laboratory. A dormitory for researchers and a wet lab are planned additions. The dry land, irrigated land and livestock systems in one location will allow insights into how best to use resources.

In December 2006, the University of Wyoming officially named the research center The James C. Hageman Sustainable Agriculture Research and Extension Center. Mr. Hageman was an alumnus of the University of Wyoming and a longtime state representative of Goshen County. He passed away in August of 2006. Announcing the new name, UW President Tom Buchanan said of Jim, “he was a lifelong rancher, vitally involved in the UW College of Agriculture and the UW School of Environmental and Natural Resources. His voice was prominent in legislation supporting SAREC. Jim was a true friend of UW and he will be missed.
