IPPA invests in feed center
URBANA – The Illinois Pork Producers Association has announced a financial commitment to the new Feed Technology Center currently being constructed south of the University of Illinois campus.
The University of Illinois and the College of ACES have committed $6 million toward the $20 million project, with private partners invited to contribute toward the balance. After breaking ground last June, the project is on track to finish in the fall of 2020.
Dean Kim Kidwell from the College of ACES says the generous gift from IPPA reflects the longstanding co-commitment to advancing the success of the swine industry through research, education and outreach.
