College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS) IACUC

The CALS IACUC oversees 13 campus animal facilities and 14 agricultural research stations throughout the state. Oversight of daily operations at these facilities falls under various departments, faculty supervisors, facility managers, and individual principal investigators. The agricultural research stations are centralized under a CALS administrative unit.

Veterinary prereview requirement

The CALS IACUC requires that all new and three-year-renewal protocol applications must be prereviewed by an RARC veterinarian before they can be submitted to the CALS IACUC for review and approval.

Facilities

For animal facility information, contact an RARC veterinarian or the IACUC office (johnson@rarc.wisc.edu, 608-265-3989).

Separate barn protocols are required to request specific animals for projects once the IACUC approves an animal protocol. Investigators should contact the farm directors for more information.

Wildlife field studies

An IACUC-approved protocol may not be required for observational wildlife studies in the field that involve no contact with the animals. See the wildlife waiver request form or contact the IACUC office or an RARC veterinarian for more information.
