KSU grain science department marking centennial

Kansas State University's Department of Grain Science and Industry will mark its centennial with special events Oct. 1 and 2.

The department works with the grain-based food, feed, fiber, fuel and bioproducts supply chain, and KSU said it is the only university in the world offering undergraduate and graduate degrees in bakery science and management, feed science and management, and milling science and management.

The weekend's activities will include an open house Oct. 2 and a science forum from 1:45 to 4:30 p.m. that day on "Global Impact Through Research and Technology Transfer."

At 5 p.m., a groundbreaking ceremony will be held for the new $13 million O.H. Kruse Feed Mill and Biorefinery.
