Grants and Projects
The NC State Extension Feed Milling program is committed to continual improvement. We’ve worked on a number of projects and grants to enhance teaching and outreach.
We are currently working on our third grant with the NC State University Distance Education and Learning Technology Applications (DELTA) group.
In this latest grant, we’re focusing on a pressing need: high-quality online/virtual labs.
