New OSU research facility will serve for years to come


The newly renamed and dedicated Tipton Valley Research Center is a special site for agriculture research, says Randy Boman, Oklahoma Extension Cotton Program Leader and Director of the Southwest Agriculture Research and Extension Center in Altus.

“There is a lot of unique history with this station,” Boman said, during a recent field day and dedication of the new facility, rebuilt after a November, 2011 tornado demolished the old structure.

Rebuilding the structure offers a tremendous benefit to OSU research leaders who come from the Stillwater campus to evaluate test plots, he said. The facility, a 50-foot by 100-foot enclosed structure has an additional 25-foot by 50-foot covered shed and includes an integrated office, laboratory and shop space. “It will serve the needs of researchers for many years to come,” Boman said.
