URBANA — Archer Daniels Midland is donating $2.5 million to help fund the Feed Technology Center at the University of Illinois.
The $20 million project in the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences at the University of Illinois will advance animal agriculture and companion animal nutrition.
“Innovation across the entire ag supply chain is key to helping the entire industry find new solutions to tackle the monumental challenge of feeding the world’s growing population,” says Ryan Lane, president, ADM Animal Nutrition in North America. “ADM is fortunate to have a strong partnership with the College of ACES and access to their animal nutrition staff, student talent, and research capabilities as we work together to develop new products, services, and solutions. We are proud to help support the College of ACES and the animal nutrition industry on this exciting new project.”
Work is scheduled to start in June and finish in fall 2020.
