Dudley Smith Initiative Farm

Barn on the Dudley Smith Farm

Dudley Smith Farm No. 7, a 226 acre research site in Christian County, is a unique resource for research and outreach under the Dudley Smith Initiative. Currently operated by a tenant under the auspices of the University Trust Farms, it has served as a field-scale research site for the work done through the initiative. Net farming income, which averages $15,000 - $20,000 per year, continues to be used for general improvements to the site. Although it has been recognized that not all research and outreach sponsored by the Dudley Smith Initiative relates to the farm, there is a special commitment to the Smith family and to Christian County. Therefore it is very strongly encouraged that appropriate research projects utilize the farm's resources.

Detailed information about use of the farm and availability of records in available from the Office of Research.
