Eastern Oregon Agricultural Research Center (EOARC) is a cooperative research effort between Oregon State University and USDA-Agricultural Research Service focusing on rangeland ecology and restoration of wildlands, environmentally compatible livestock systems, forage crops, and alternative livestock systems in the sagebrush-steppe of the Great Basin and inland coniferous forests of the Pacific Northwest. The Center's research program is unique in the integration of research about beef cattle, rangeland, wildlife, watershed, and forest management.
