Description

The J.F. Witter Teaching and Research Center, the livestock research facility at the University of Maine, often referred to as the Witter Farm, consists of 300 acres of land in Old Town, Maine, near the campus. Until the facility was constructed in 1972, livestock such as cattle and sheep were housed in barns on the main part of the campus in Orono.

The collection contains historical records of cattle herds maintained at the Orono campus of the University of Maine and other university farms, 1936-1946; records of various kinds of cattle sold, 1957-1967; as well as general information about the relocation of the Witter Center and some of its programs. The collection also contains a few records about the sheep flocks maintained at the university.
