Colorado State University's College of Agricultural Sciences is getting a helping hand from two of its animal sciences professors. Temple Grandin and Gary Smith have both agreed to help fund a new building and new programs in the department.

Each of the professors are donating $250,000 to the Animal Sciences Phase II Building construction and the new programs. Phase I of the plan was a renovated Animal Sciences Building that was unveiled on Sept. 17, Jason Kosovski reported for the Colorado State Source.

Both donors will have parts of the project named after them. Animal Sciences Phase II will be named after Gary and Kay Smith Global Food Innovation Center, which will feature a livestock, poultry and meat processing center and a culinary research facility, along with many other things that will help teach students. The building will also feature the Temple Grandin Animal Handling and Education Center, where students will learn livestock handling.
