Heifers and Goats Arrive at Ag Science Center The students are thrilled!

A student leads the new heifer.

The first heifer moved into the AISD’s new Agricultural Science Center on October 26, joining the goats that moved in earlier that week!

The 23,000 square-foot Agricultural Science Center includes 54 flexible-fencing pens for goats and sheep, 14 heifer pens, rabbit pens, an animal exercise area, metal construction lab and two classrooms. In addition, the center will soon be net-zero. It will include solar panels, a wind turbine and rain water collection, allowing the facility to operate completely on its own energy production.
