Webb Farm

The Webb Farm houses facilities for the college’s registered Angus cattle herd, Dorset sheep flock and horse herd; and includes a lambing barn, livestock arena, and the new equine facility. But it's just one of many agricultural facilities associated with the school. There are also the Fischer Greenhouse Laboratory, the UD Dairy, and the Apiary, just to name a few.
