 Gudmundsen Sandhills Laboratory

The Gudmundsen Sandhills Laboratory (GSL) is a research ranch located in the heart of the Nebraska Sandhills. It is comprised of 11,600 acres of upland native range and 1,200 acres of subirrigated meadow. It was gifted to the University of Nebraska Foundation in 1978.

Since GSL’s inception, research and educational programs have become more ecologically diverse and team oriented. Joint projects with animal, range, soil, veterinary, economics, entomology, geology, hydrology, forestry and wildlife have increased our understanding of the Sandhill's ecosystem. This has resulted in advances in range livestock nutrition, beef cattle reproduction, grazing systems, rangeland ecology, low cost cattle management, groundwater issues, and wildlife management.
