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. The dry land, irrigated land and livestock
systems in one location will allow insights into how best to use resources.
A dormitory for researchers and a wet lab are also available. Please call (307) 837-2000
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.
SAREC will serve the citizens of Wyoming, the region and nation by facilitating innovative
discovery, dissemination, and dialogue of integrated agricultural systems that are
ecologically sound, economically viable, and socially acceptable.
