Fly over South Carolina, or anywhere in the United States for that matter, and you will see how much we depend on agriculture. While this photo is over 50 years old, the view has not changed much. South Carolina is home to 26,500 farms and nearly 5 million acres of farmland. In fact, 92% of South Carolina is farm or forest. Clemson Extension continues to conduct research that benefits the growers and producers of South Carolina and beyond.

The Simpson Experiment Station

The Simpson Experiment Station, part of Research Farm Services, focuses primarily on beef cattle and forage research.

The Clemson Bull Test is a service and educational program housed at the Station. The test is designed to identify genetic traits that will help beef producers make better profits by reducing feed costs.
