The mission of AFSRC is to develop knowledge and technology to increase the profitability of small-farm agricultural enterprises in the Region while enhancing soil and water quality and environmental integrity. Substantial land resources representative of the rough topography of the region are necessary to meet that mission. This view from the cab of a tractor shows a small part of one of AFSRC’s research farms where research is being conducted to develop and improve hill-land grazing systems.
