Skaggs Research Lab Refurbished
Built in the 1980s, the Skaggs Research Laboratory on 800 East in Logan housed animal nutrition labs for years.
Last year during the months of March, April, May and June, the Skaggs building underwent renovations. Refurbished the Skaggs became the new home of the Utah State University Analytical Labs (USUAL).
This service laboratory provides analysis of plant tissue, soil, water and forage samples for USU research labs and off campus clientele. The instrumentation is state of the art and helps Utah agriculture make better management decisions.
The refurbishing was perfectly timed as the old Animal Science building was being retired, and the new Agricultural Sciences building was not thought to be a fitting location for the, at times, dirty and dusty projects the lab performs.
The Skaggs building provides all the necessary components for the lab as well as a beneficial feature, abundant and free parking for the public.
