|Auburn University is able to continue developing a state-of-the-art research and education facility thanks to a $500,000 donation from Alabama-based D&F Equipment Sales Inc. and the Fortenberry family, the company’s founding family. The donation will specifically go to adding a processing plant to the ongoing construction of the Charles C. Miller Research and Education Center. The future plant will be dedicated to facilitating research and education in processing efficiency, animal welfare, food safety and quality, and product development.
With the complete Miller Center, Auburn University hopes to continue efforts to host the United States’ premier research and education center for the poultry industry. The donation will continue the growth of the 30-acre center, with the processing plant planned to break-ground in Fall 2018 thus becoming the sixth building constructed at the center.
