The Kilgore College Demonstration Farm

Location

The 448-acre Kilgore College Agricultural and Environmental Science Center, located two miles northeast of Overton on State Highway 135, houses all lecture and laboratory classes.

What we do

The College maintains a commercial herd of crossbred cattle for use in a newly created embryo transfer program as a training aid for animal science students and to enhance the genetic makeup of the stock.

Short history

KC's Bull Evaluation Center is the only such facility in East Texas for measuring feed efficiency and several other genetic traits in bulls. Started in 1973, the facility can accommodate over 100 bulls.

Rocket science

A state-of-the-art greenhouse is available for horticultural students to grow various types of plants throughout the year. Landscaping and bedding plants have become a substantial component of it.

Mission Statement

"The Kilgore College Agricultural and Environmental Science Department provides students with freshman- and sophomore-level courses that meet the standards of the Higher Education Coordinating Board of the State of Texas. Courses taught provide an excellent combination of theory, modern technology, and practical hands-on laboratory work. This curriculum leads to an Associates Degree and/or transfer credits toward a baccalaureate degree. The program seeks to challenge and stimulate students' desire to enhance their knowledge base in fundamental and application sciences."
