45-acre ranch near Sedona donated to future U. of Arizona veterinary school


TUCSON, Arizona — A 45-acre ranch near Sedona is going to be part of a veterinary program launching at the University of Arizona in August.

The Arizona Daily Star reports ( the Steel Foundation is a Phoenix-based charity group that's passing the deed to its $2.6 million DK Ranch located in the rural community of Cornville to the university's College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.

Under the agreement, UA will maintain agriculture on the property and spend about $200,000 annually in upkeep. The site will have a caretaker and is intended to serve as six-week component of the program.

Agriculture College dean Shane Burgess says DK Ranch is a beautiful property that will be a boon to the new program.

The Steel Foundation also supported UA medical school's Steele Children's Research Center.
