Kansas State University’s new O.H. Kruse Feed Technology Innovation Center opened in October, capturing every step of the grain industry.  

With the dedication of the O.H. Kruse Feed Technology Innovation Center in October, Kansas State University officials say that the school’s Grain Science Complex provides students a world-class educational experience for the wheat industry.

"Having every step of the grain industry—from research and seed certification to processing and marketing—all located within walking distance is something that sets the grain science campus apart," says Justin Gilpin, CEO of Kansas Wheat. "It is unique not just to Kansas, but to the whole country, to have this level of integration and expertise located in one spot."

In addition to the feed mill, the Grain Science Complex includes the Hal Ross Flour Mill, the Bioprocessing and Industrial Value Added Program, the Kansas Crop Improvement Association, the International Grains Program and the Kansas Wheat Innovation Center. Gilpin says the Grain Science Complex allows K-State to address the immediate needs of the feed industry while providing the next generation of farmers and industry professionals with top-notch education and experience.
