The Kerr Center offers both beginning and experienced ranchers information (how-to videos, slideshows, reports, training) on Oklahoma sustainable livestock production, including  beef cattle,  meat goats, and  poultry.  

The Kerr Ranch has been a working ranch since Sen. Robert S. Kerr established it in the 1950s, raising Angus stock.

The ranch has changed with the times, using the most up-to-date sustainable management approaches to improve profitability, maintain the fertility of the soil, and produce healthy animals.
