New Veterinary & Biomedical Research Building Dedication & Sheep School

I’m Lacy Gray with Washington Ag Today.

On May 2nd WSU’s new $96 million state of the art Veterinary and Biomedical Research Building was dedicated during a ceremony on the Pullman campus. Several speakers were on hand to speak about the importance of the new building, which is the third of a planned six in the research and education complex. One of those speaking was WSU regent Scott Carson.

CARSON: This building is the beginning. It’s our opportunity to compete for those wonderful young people that will be coming here in the future - the researchers that will do wonderful work because of the collaborative environment that this represents.

Located within the Research and Education Complex the Veterinary Medical Research  Science Building will provide properly equipped and environmentally controlled, state-of-the-art biomedical research and support space for the health science teaching and research programs. In addition, there will be a vivarium to provide modern animal holding facilities for gene targeted and knockout animals, as well as essential quarantine space and specialized environmentally controlled space for biomedical research.

The Puget Sound Purebred Sheep Breeders Association will be hosting it’s annual Sheep School on June 8th at the Stanwood High School in Stanwood. Registration begins at 8:30 AM with classes starting at 9 AM. Producers who are actively involved in the sheep industry along with professionals in related agricultural industries will be speaking on such topics as breeding, lambing and newborn care, ram care, wool and meat production, and marketing. For more information visit pspsba.org.
