Pork producer pledges $2M to Iowa project

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.
