The Entire State Of Montana Is Our Campus

Our research centers provide the foundation upon which the research and teaching missions of the university stay relevant to needs of agriculture in the state.

Each center addresses the diverse climatological, ecological and environmental challenges faced by agricultural communities around the state. Much of the work done at the centers collaborates with scientists on the MSU-Bozeman campus, nationwide experts, the USDA and private industry. Research includes:

  • Variety and breeding line evaluation
  • Beef cattle genetics and production
  • Multi-species cropping systems
  • Integrated pest management
  • Soil fertility research.


The MAES research centers:

  • address the practical problems of agricultural production and resource management through programs of basic and applied research, with the emphasis on application.
  • develop research programs of topical relevance to Montana's diverse agricultural industry.
  • interact with agricultural clientele in identifying pertinent research problems through annual field days and other educational and outreach programs.
