Industry Group Lends Hand In Horse Barn Reconstruction
March 26, 2010
The Illinois Equine Industry Research and Promotion Board had pledged to assist the College of Agricultural Sciences with funding to replace a horse barn used for teaching, research and breeding. In the storm of May 8, 2009, the building was one of several structures destroyed at University Farms. In addition, Purina and other groups have contributed to assist with rebuilding the facilities as well. Dr. Sheryl King, professor in animal science, stated "Because we have the money in hand, we can .... get our project going sooner."
