SUNY Cobleskill Unveils New Agricultural and Natural Resources Center
The State University of New York at Cobleskill has a new $45 million agricultural center. A grand opening was held Friday at the Center for Agricultural and Natural Resources. The building opened for classes two months ago. The 93,000-square-foot center includes a meat processing lab, taxidermy lab, fish hatcheries, four greenhouses and a conservatory. It's the new home of the college's animal and plant science and environmental programs. SUNY Cobleskill plans to launch new programs in food sciences, fermentation sciences and other areas in the new agricultural center next year. Cobleskill has more than 2,500 students, 35 percent of them enrolled in agriculture programs. The 782-acre campus houses a 200-cow dairy facility, equestrian center and student-run restaurant.
