ASU Ranch

The Management, Instruction and Research Center is home to our largest lab. The MIR sits on 6,000 acres just north of San Angelo. On this working ranch you can take care of livestock, manage wildlife or process meat -- all hands-on experience you can take directly into your career. You can also conduct your research here in conjunction with faculty who have decades of experience.
