MIR Center

You’ll spend a lot of time at the Management, Instruction and Research Center, our 6,000-acre ASU Ranch. It’s where we raise cattle, sheep and goats, grow and produce feed, and conduct range and wildlife management activities. You could help with the ranch’s business operations while you learn the different aspects of marketing livestock.
