The concept of a Teaching and Research Feed Mill at NC State University started in the early 1990s when the Department of Poultry Science identified the need to replace their 1950s poultry feed mill. The concept was expanded from a single-species to a multi-species feed mill capable of manufacturing feed for all Lake Wheeler Road Field Laboratory animals. The feed mill was designed to meet the teaching and research needs of the departments of Poultry Science, Animal Science and Biological and Agricultural Engineering. A ground-breaking ceremony was held May 24, 1999. Construction started in 2001 and finished in 2003. Equipment was purchased from 2004 to 2006. Installation began in 2006 and finished in the fall of 2007. The Feed Mill Education Unit was dedicated on October 31, 2007. Faculty and staff began conducting research and teaching students how to operate the equipment in January of 2008.
