Facilities

27,000-acre Laboratory - Berry offers an unusually beautiful environment for learning on its 27,000-acre campus, one of the worlds largest. Fields, forests, lakes and mountains provide scenic beauty in a protected natural setting. Over 1,000-acres are dedicated directly to the operation of the livestock support units that are important component of the animal science programs.
Facilities - Westcott

Westcott Building - The Lamar Westcott building is the academic home for the department of Animal Science. Located within the building are faculty offices, classrooms, and laboratories dedicated to the animal science program. Students spend a significant amount of time within the Westcott building in addition to the many other buildings on campus. 

Livestock Support Units - The primary purpose of the livestock units is to support the academic program. Many labs for courses provide the hands-on experience and direct application with the live animal. Additionally, the livestock units are important for research, student work opportunities, and related student-run enterprises. 

The Gunby Equine Center was named in honor of the Honorable Eugene Gunby in 1974. Stricken with polio when he was five years old, Eugene Gunby showed great personal courage and perseverance in overcoming his severe physical disability to become a skilled and avid horseman. He credited Berry College and his love for horses for developing the sense of responsibility, honor and values that guided him throughout life.

 Facilities - Gunby Equine Center

Gunby Equine Center - The Gunby Equine Center expands over 185-acres. In addition to the 180-acres of pasture, the primary facilities include a covered arena and classroom/office complex. Three barns maintain over 50 stalls as well as tack rooms and wash racks. There is also a lighted outdoor arena, a 125' round pen, and access to many miles of trails throughout the surrounding mountains. 

Berry College owns approximately 70 horses. The majority of the horses are used for instructional purposes and research. The Gunby Equine Center also maintains a small band of brood mares and breeding stallions.

The Gunby Equine Center is also the home for the Berry College Intercollegiate Equestrian Team. This varsity women’s team competes in the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association. Visit the Berry Equestrian Team website.

Students are also encouraged to bring their horses to campus. The Gunby Equine Center provides full board, access to all facilities and trails throughout the campus for students maintaining their horses at the facility. Students have the opportunity to gain valuable experience working at the facility. 

The Rollins Ruminant Center is named in honor of the late O. Wayne Rollins, a prominent Atlanta businessman, successful beef cattle producer and supporter of Berry College. The complex is the home of the beef, dairy, and sheep units.

Facilities - Rollins Ruminant Research Center


Rollins Beef Cattle Unit - The beef cattle units maintains over 500 acres of pasture to support two herds of cattle. The registered Angus herd consists of approximately 100 cows, is well recognized within the breed for excellence. An additional commercial crossbred herd is also maintained. These animals are used extensively in the teaching and research program. Students also gain experience working with cattle through the student work program. The beef cattle unit is also the home of The Berry Farms – Angus Beef, a student-operated enterprise.  

Rollins Dairy Center - The Berry College dairy began in 1902 and since has continually strived to create an outstanding registered Jersey herd. Currently the milking string consists of approximately 40 cows being milked twice daily. The Berry College Dairy maintains over 100 acres, including a state-of-the-art four-stall herringbone parlor, free-stall area, and calf rearing facilities. Today, Berry continues to maintain outstanding cattle within their herd while teaching students all aspects of dairy operation. Students can gain valuable experience working at the facility. Two student-operated enterprises, The Berry Farms- Jersey Milk, and The Berry Farms – Genetics are operated through the dairy.

Rollins Sheep Unit - There are numerous challenges to maintaining sheep in the Southeastern United States. The Berry College sheep flock is composed of predominantly of the Katahdin breed. This breed of sheep has some distinct advantages over breeds that produce wool. These sheep are better able to cope with our climate because they are a hair breed as opposed to a wool breed, so they shed their hair when it gets warm. The Katahdin is also noted for exceptional parasite resistance. The flock consists of approximately 40 ewes and is used extensively for teaching and research. Students can also gain significant experience working at this facility.
