|Purdue University formally dedicated its new $60 million, 123,000 square-foot animal sciences complex in a ceremony on March 22.
The dedication ceremony represents the university’s commitment to innovating and improving Indiana’s $6 billion livestock industry, which accounts for more than 35,000 jobs. The facility will serve as a center for interactive student learning and advanced research.
