Kansas State University's Department of Grain Science and Industry has just finished construction of a new flour mill, named the Hal Ross Flour Mill, located in the Grain Science Complex on Kimball Avenue in Manhattan.
A public open house will be held on Oct. 21 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. The public is invited to tour the new mill, talk with milling professors and students, and learn more about how wheat is milled into flour.
The Hal Ross Flour Mill is the third of five buildings that will eventually make up K-State's new Grain Science Complex. The Bioprocessing and Industrial Value Added Program (BIVAP) building and the International Grains Program Conference Center have been completed.
Two other buildings, a feed mill and a teaching and research building that will house K-State's bakery science and management program are also planned for the 16-acre site across from the university's football complex.
Parking for the open house will be available in the grain science complex, located at 1980 Kimball Ave. For more information about the open house, call (785) 532-5932.
