W.A. Ranches

at the University of Calgary

In 2018, J.C. (Jack) Anderson and his daughter Wynne Chisholm donated W.A. Ranches to the University of Calgary, fundamentally transforming education and research at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine (UCVM). The university will continue to operate the ranch - now called W.A. Ranches at the University of Calgary - for the purposes of teaching and learning, research, and community engagement.

Students and faculty across many disciplines and from around the world will benefit directly from access to a working ranch. The study of cattle in the complex, real-farm context will enable research that can improve management practices for ranchers as well as academic programming that produces better veterinarians with more hands-on experience.
