2017 Sheridan R&E Center - Pistol and Pete

About ShREC

The Sheridan Research and Extension Center (ShREC) is one of four University of Wyoming  R&E sites in Wyoming, it is in the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Plant Hardiness Zone 4 with an average growing season of 120 days and average annual precipitation of 15 inches. 

ShREC now has two active sites within Sheridan County. 

First the Wyarno station site, originally established in 1915, is located nearly seven miles east of Sheridan near Wyarno. This site consists of approximately 300 acres of dry land with an elevation of approx. 3,800 feet.

The second and main office site located just south of Sheridan.  In 2013 the University of Wyoming purchased and renovated the Watt Regional Agriculture Center on Sheridan College (SC) campus.  It then subleases the Adams Ranch located directly south of the new office location. The Adams Ranch consists of approx. 400 acres, to be utilized for research and educational activities. Since most of the Adams Ranch is under irrigation, the scope of ShREC has expanded even further. 

At ShREC we are able to provide dry land and irrigated land for studies to facilitate research and education on agriculture, forage management, horticulture, and viticulture (the science, study and production of grapes), along with various other possibilities.
