Ag Secretary Vilsack to tour MSU tomorrow

STARKVILLE — U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack will tour the campus at Mississippi State University tomorrow and will be briefed on research projects funded by his agency.

MSU was involved in nearly $97 million in agriculture research during the 2011 fiscal year.

MSU officials say Vilsack will tour research projects at the university’s R. R. Foil Plant Science Research Center, also known as North Farm, including a bioenergy pilot plant. He will also visit the Leveck Animal Research Center, or South Farm, where he will be briefed on research in the areas of water conservation, catfish and beef cattle health.

He will conduct a round-table discussion with students before having dinner with university and state agriculture leaders.
