Land Grant University System Celebrates 150 Years

The nation’s Land Grant university system is celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2012. A lot has changed in American agriculture over those years, but one thing remains—the commitment of Land Grant institutions to the agricultural sciences, says Craig Beyrouty, dean of the College of Ag Sciences at Colorado State University. Speaking on behalf of the faculty and administration at CSU, Beyrouty says a renewed emphasis on the ag sciences will benefit not just Colorado, but agriculture worldwide.
