The equipment will be used in Introduction to Field Crop Science and Animal Science labs. Compeer made a $5,000 donation for ag technology in December. “It’s both humbling and gratifying to have a first-class organization like Compeer supporting our agriculture program,” Corcoran said. “Because of their generosity, our ag students will experience the latest developments in DNA research.”
