The Experimental Farm of the University was established in the fall of 1957 as an independent affiliated organization by the combination of eight divisions, i.e. Administration, Agronomy, Horticulture, Animal Husbandry, Forestry, Plant Pathology and Entomology, Agricultural Chemistry, Agricultural Engineering, and an Accounting office. Under the supervision of the Dean of the College of Bioresources and Agriculture, the Experimental Farm conducts effective research, extension and instruction programs for the agriculture related development activities. Most of the practice courses of students and research experiments of faculty are carried on here. The Experimental Farm has two separate locations. One location with 9.04 hectares of land is situated southeast of the campus, on section IV, Keelung Road. Another location, with 19.15 hectares of land lies at Ankeng near Taipei. The Experimental Farm has a botanical garden for crops or varieties planted in the garden. These crops include agronomy, horticulture crops and medical herbs etc... It provides the material of students practice and observation. The farm has a large collection of horticutural crops of tropical and subtropical origin as well. These crops were propagated each year for teaching and research purposes. The division of Animal Husbandry of the Agricultural Experimental Farm raises dairy cattle, pigs, chickens and goats for laboratory and research uses. Dairy cattle rasising is one of the major works in the division. Recently, embryo transfer and artificial insemination techniques have been successfully used to improve the productivity of the dairy herd. Rice, vegetables, flowers, juice, bread, ice cream and fresh milk are produced on the Farm and selled to the faculty and students.
