College celebrates feed mill grand opening

More than 300 people celebrated the grand opening of the new Feed Mill Educational Unit in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at North Carolina State University. Representatives of the feed milling, swine and poultry industries, as well as university officials, faculty, staff and students, gathered Wednesday, Oct. 31, for a day-long celebration that included tours of the feed mill and a dedication ceremony.

The Feed Mill Educational Unit, a hands-on learning laboratory of the college's Departments of Poultry Science, Animal Science, and Biological and Agricultural Engineering, will provide opportunities for students to learn the principles and methods of feed manufacturing. The facility is one of only two teaching and research mills in the nation, and the only one on the East Coast.
