Housing Per Diem and Service Rates
All animal housing and pen sizes must meet federal and university regulations relative to size, design and construction. VMP has the required pens to meet requirements for conventional and Biohazard Level 2 research for most species.
VMP will work with investigators to meet housing requirements for special research applications whenever possible. VMP primarily houses horses, cattle, swine, sheep, and goats. However, limited facilities are also available to house deer, coyotes, and dogs.
Investigators that are not in the College of Veterinary Medicine should contact Dr. Clay Ashley at 979-845-6488 or by email at CAshley@cvm.tamu.edu for non-CVM per diem and service rates.
Please contact VMP for future Housing and Surgery estimates
Investigators should expect a minimum 5% annual increase when writing future grant proposals
