The highly-anticipated Iowa State University Kent Feed Mill and Grain Science Complex is officially underway.
The Aaron Boysen Memorial Scholarship has been established to celebrate the life and professional work of Aaron Boysen. Aaron lived a full life that passionately focused on three primary areas – family, agriculture, and his work at Kent feeds. Aaron’s devotion to these three things has left a lasting legacy on those who came in contact with both his personal life and with those who worked with him at Kent for over 30 years.
Kent Corporation is committing $8 million, the Iowa Corn Promotion Board $4 million, and Sukup Manufacturing Co. $2 million in support of a new Iowa State University educational and research facility for feed milling and grain science. The $14 million in gifts are the first to be announced for the $21.2 million feed mill and grain science complex, which will be funded entirely through private giving. The commitments made by Kent Corporation and Iowa Corn Promotion Board represent the largest gifts each has ever made.
