The precision agriculture program at Lake Region State College in Devils Lake, North Dakota has outgrown its current home. Program Director Preston Sundeen says that’s why plans are underway for a new building on campus. The public got a sneak peak of the Hofstad Agriculture Center during an open house. “It will be 25 percent larger with two new classrooms, and we’ll be able to open a removable wall between them,” says Sundeen. “The shop will be 100 x 200, well lit and heated to bring projects in.” A video promoting the precision agriculture program also premiered at the event, featuring students like Cole Matejcek from Brocket, ND and James Fisk of Doyon, ND. $1.5 million has been secured from the state for new building, but that’s just half of the total price tag of $3 million. “So we’re actively fundraising. At the moment, we have just north of $350,000.” Those interested in learning more about the fundraising efforts can follow LRSC Precision Ag on social media or contact the department at 701-662-1600.
