New Ferguson Dairy Center Free-stall Barn

Oklahoma State University alumnus Larry Ferguson discovered a match made in heaven when he was working at the OSU Dairy Center in 1975, both in terms of his eventual career in the U.S. dairy industry and in the former Kayleen Helms. Forty years later, a $2 million gift from Larry and Kayleen Ferguson is proving instrumental in the construction of a new state-of-the-art, free-stall barn and other improvements at the dairy center.

New Oklahoma Foundation Seed Stocks Facility

Oklahoma Foundation Seed Stocks works to increase and distribute new wheat, peanut and grass varieties developed and released by DASNR, maintain the pure seed stock of older varieties, and increase and distribute crop varieties developed by other organizations that are adaptable to Oklahoma and released jointly with the Oklahoma Agricultural Experiment Station. To handle the increasing demand, in November, 2016, OFSS broke ground on a new 20,000 square-foot space, which will include a separate cleaning facility. Once completed, the new complex is expected to make the OFSS staff’s jobs easier and the operation even more efficient and effective.

A lasting legacy serving Oklahoma agriculture

Construction of the new Dr. Raymond Sidwell Research Facility at DASNR’s North Central Research Station near Lahoma is progressing. The facility will have a conference room, offices and restrooms compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and will feature a large open bay design that will facilitate equipment and make possible field day events unimpeded by weather. Sidwell served as senior station manager for the 143-acre experiment station from June of 1980 until his passing in December of 2013. More than three decades of Sidwell’s meticulous management of the station allowed for major research efforts in wheat breeding and variety development, soil fertility, weed science, soybean varieties and cropping systems, grain sorghum variety trials, plant pathology and entomology.
