Completed in 1969, Marvel Baker Hall permitted total integration of the staff members concerned with meat production and those specializing in dairy production. The facility has research and teaching capabilities that enhance the effectiveness of the Animal Science Department's public service. The academic community of animal agriculture centering in Marvel Baker Hall stimulates self improvement and development of the scientist-teacher on the staff. Nebraska's youth who study Animal Science profit through the excellence of the educational opportunities available to them including work in the analytical laboratories, the meat laboratory, and in the animal units as well as participating in extracurricular judging teams or other clubs.
