Welcome to the ACRE

The Agronomy Center for Research and Education, ACRE, is an outdoor laboratory for Purdue Agriculture. Used for field research and hands-on teaching, the 1,135 acre farm is a busy place with faculty, staff, student, and visitor activity. I am Jim Beaty. I have been Superintendent of the ACRE since 1986. With my four full time staff members, part time help, and student employees we are responsible for operating the research farm. About 53 university researchers conduct projects here at the ACRE. I plan to write about our research, visitors, and farm safety thoughts.

ACRE Safety Thought # 52

"I get hurt (non-emergency) on the job at ACRE. Where do I go?" The two approved care facilities in the West Lafayette campus area are; ** Clarian Arnett Occupational Health Center and ** Regional Occupational Care Center (ROCC). Remember that PUSH, Purdue University Health Center, is no longer the place to go with work related injuries. Think, plan, train, and work safely at ACRE. Jim
