AgroVet-Strickhof has four sites. The buildings belonging to the Kanton of Zurich and the ETH Zurich are located at the main site in Lindau. The Wülflingen site belongs to the Kanton of Zurich and Alp Weissenstein to the ETH Zurich.
AgroVet-Strickhof is a cooperation between the ETH Zurich, The University of Zurich and Strickhof, the competence centre for education and services in agriculture and animal nutrition of the Kanton of Zurich.
Following the principle of «From Feed to Food», questions relating to livestock science and animal health are approached in an interdisciplinary and practical way.
AgroVet-Strickhof is spread across 4 locations: Lindau (ZH), Wülflingen (ZH), Früebüel (Walchwil ZG) and Alp Weissenstein (Bergün GR). They are located at various altitudes and complement each other optimally.
Since breaking ground on 11.08.2015 at the main site in Lindau (ZH), several new buildings comprising the most modern research infrastructure have been built. They will gradually become operational throughout 2017. The youngstock barn will be completed and become operational in fall 2018.
