Brody Environmental Center
There is no center in the world that matches the BEC in capability for the study of environmental stress in domestic animals. The Climatology Chambers are focus sites for researchers who require state-of-the-art climate control to evaluate animal health and performance.
Research in the BEC utilizes combined, interdisciplinary expertise from interrelated areas, including physiology (environmental and reproductive), nutrition, behavior, muscle biology, immunology, veterinary and human medicine, engineering, and atmospheric sciences. Research scientists and educators work together to develop and disseminate effective, integrated solutions to reduce environmental stress.
