Since the university acquired the
Agricultural Research and Development
Center at Mead in 1962, it has under
gone many changes.
Starting with a worn-out army com
plex, the Mead center was involved
only with non-surplus-producing crops.
The center, then owned by the univer
sity, was far from adequate for assisting
th agricultural science program on
East Campus. Last week marked the
center's 25th anniversary.
Richard McManaman, manager of
agricultural research at Mead, said
that since then, several additions have
been made to make the center one of.
the top agricultural research centers in
Over the last 25 years, McManaman
said, the center has added a swine
complex, a cattle, beef cow and calf
herd; and a dairy, and devised a more
efficient use of its 9,600 acres for the
study of crops.
The center, he said, is now used by
all of NU's agricultural sciences, in
cluding animal science, nutrition and
health, agricultural meteorology and
the forestry department.
"It's an extension of East Campus,
said Warren Sahs, superintendent of
the center. The expansion and devel
opment of the center has changed the
philosophy of the scientists, adminis
trators and students at Mead, he said.
One addition that has gained the
Mead center nationwide recognition is
the addition of a rhizotron, an under
ground building used to study the
development and erosion of roots and
soil. The roots and soil are encased in
glass so the researchers can monitor
the development from germination. The
Mead center has one of five rhizotrons
in use in the United States.
Two capital construction projects a
main headquarters and a public-events
center, already have been approved by
the Board of Regents. Sahs said money
for the center will come from private
and public donations. Preliminary con
struction bidding should begin in two
