On an area of 34 ha there are 7 unoccupied buildings (about 1700 square metres), large experimental animals quarters, working quarters and a base for equipment. The station is beautifully located by a National Park. Experiments are conducted on goats, sheep and calves. Research concerns biological control of gastrointestinal nematodes, transmission of lung nematodes between wild and domestic animals, immunological responses to parasitic infections and efficiency of recombinated vaccines against the liver fluke.

The station lies by lake Kuc, in the picturesque scenery of the Mazurian Lakeland. On an area of 330 ha there are: a deer farm with 200 Red deer (Cervus elaphus) and about 200 Fallow deer (Dama dama), an antler museum and a laboratory building. The Farm has a crash and conditions necessary to conduct experimental research. Research concerns improving methods of deer breeding and at the present is concentrated on controlling parasitic diseases and optimization of deer-breeding conditions. At the station there is an Antler Museum where Visitors are able to see the influence of breeding methods and conditions on antlers and the animals themselves. It is open during the spring-summer period when the animals are on spacious summer pastures and closes for the mating season. The Station combines ecological and parasitological education of children and youths from various schools. This involves both lectures and practical lessons, as well as field trips allowing direct contact with animals in their natural environment.
