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. The MIR is also home to our largest lab, where you can conduct your research in conjunction with faculty who have decades of experience.

For Our Neighbors

Come see us at the ranch! Get ready to grill with home-grown and processed meat from our market. Reserve a spot on one of our affordable wildlife hunts. Or buy your next breeder or herd from carefully managed ASU stock.
