Shanxi Agricultural UniversityEcological Agriculture and Animal HusbandryInstitute(preparation) was founded in Youyu County Experimental Farm in 1952, and was renamed Youyu County Agricultural Experiment Station in 1962 under Youyu County; in 1963, it was renamed Youyu Agricultural Experiment Stationunder the In Shanxi Academy of Agricultural Sciences; in 1968, it belonged to the May 7th Cadre School of Youyu County; in 1978, it belonged to Youyu County Nursery; in 1978, it was renamedtheYouyu County Agricultural Experiment Station under Youyu County;In 1980, it was changed to Youyu Agricultural Experiment Station of Shanxi Academy of Agricultural Sciences, affiliated to Shanxi Academy of Agricultural Sciences.In 2019, Shanxi Agricultural University and Shanxi Academy of Agricultural Sciences jointly established the new Shanxi Agricultural University Institute of Ecological Agriculture and Animal Husbandry (in preparation).

The Institute of Ecological Agriculture and Animal Husbandry (under preparation) of Shanxi Agricultural University is a research institution specializing in agricultural scientific research and experiments, breeding and promotion of virus-free potato varieties, promotion, exchange and training of other crop production technologies,and other related social services. Key research areas include: collection, conservation, innovation and utilization of germplasm resources,breeding of new varieties of small grains such as pea, millet, oat, potato, and buckwheat,research on supporting technologies, andresearch and application of new technologies and methods for crop breeding. The Ecological Agriculture and Animal Husbandry Research Institute (in preparation) is the affiliated unit of the Youyu Comprehensive Experiment Station of the National Oat and Buckwheat Industry System and the Youyu Comprehensive Experiment Station of the National Millet and Sorghum Industrial System. Our institute willmake full use ofthe geographical advantagesof the interlaced agricultural and animal husbandry belt of Yanmenguan, actively meet the needs of local development, build a demonstration area for high yield and efficiency of crops with regional characteristics, and strengthen applied research and achievement transformations.

There are 12 people in the whole institute: 10 professional and technical personnel, including 1 researcher, 2 associate researchers, 5 assistant researchers, 2 research interns, 1 manager, and 1 worker. One of them is the head of the Youyu Comprehensive Experiment Station of the National Oat and Buckwheat Industry System.
