Laramie R&E Center Field Day Tour

Laramie Research & Extension Center

The Laramie Research and Extension Center (LREC) was established in 1891, and in 1990 LREC relocated to its current location on Highway 230. Today LREC houses beef, sheep, and swine research units and the Cliff and Martha Hansen Teaching Arena. The 5500-acre McGuire Ranch, located northeast of Laramie on Highway 34, is also a part of LREC and is focused on rangeland livestock production. The Laramie Research and Extension Center is one of the highest-altitude agriculture research centers in the United States at 7220 feet above sea level.

LREC Mission Statement

The Laramie Research and Extension Center (LREC) was established to provide the University of Wyoming faculty, staff, and students with research, extension, and teaching facilities that will improve the lives of the citizens of Wyoming and the nation. Agriculture research conducted at LREC will help our farmers and ranchers to be sustainable and profitable now and in the future.
