Current Owner

In January 1995, The University of Arizona College of Agriculture and Life Sciences acquired the V Bar V Ranch from Ben and Betsy Zink on a gift/purchase basis. The acquisition was made possible through the use of private funds provided by College supporters and the UA Foundation.

Today, the 71,000 acre Agricultural Experiment Station continues as a working cattle ranch and serves as an educational and demonstration facility focusing on environmental, wildlife and domestic livestock issues in Arizona and the Southwest.
