Grain Science Program
The Department of Grain Science and Industry maintains one-of-a-kind teaching and research facilities.
Site preparation on the new Grain Science Complex began in Spring 2002. Construction began on the Bioprocessing and Industrial Value Added Program (BIVAP) Building in Fall 2002. Construction began on the Flour Mill in Fall 2005 and the Hal Ross Flour Mill was dedicated in October 2006.
"The new facility will enhance both educational and research programs of the department. The flour mill, feed mill, biological value-added center, international grains center and central complex with bakery science labs and teaching areas will attract the most talented students and encourage excellence." Steven C. Nelson, Executive Vice President American Association of Cereal Chemists.
