BRI (NC State) donates $100,000 for the advancement of poultry research (10/18/2010)

BRI grew out of technology developed in the N.C. State Poultry Science Department by now-retired poultry science professor and BRI co-founder Dr. Jason Shih.

Dr. Sam Pardue, head of the departmet at NC State University said he is very grateful for the gift, which will significantly expand the department’s reasearch and teaching capabilities.
