The owners and founders of Iowa Select Farms—Jeff and Deb Hansen—have pledged two-million dollars towards construction of a new animal science learning center at Iowa State University.
Construction of the more than seven-million dollar center will be funded entirely through private gifts. With the Hansens’ gift, more than six-million has been raised. The university expects groundbreaking to be scheduled this fall.
The Iowa Board of Regents has approved a request to name the facility in honor of the Hansens.
Iowa Select Farms is a pork production company headquartered in Iowa Falls.
