Groundbreaking announced for new Ag building at USU

The College of Agriculture will break ground on a new building located on the east side of the University’s historic quad that will be the center for 21st Century agriculture research and teaching. Officials say the prestigious location highlights the continuing commitment of Utah State University to agriculture research, the agriculture industry and USU’s land-grant mission. The $43 million building will take two years to complete. The groundbreaking ceremony will be held on Tuesday, May 4 starting at 2 p.m. at the building site. Everyone is invited to attend. News of the groundbreaking followed the passage and signing of House Bill 282 sponsored by Senator Lyle Hillyard, R-Logan, and Rep. Fred Hunsaker, R-District 4. The bill released bond funds for the building which was approved by the legislature in the 2008 session.
