South Dakota State University is renovating its dairy plant.

Officials say the $9.3 million remodeling and additions will turn the 50-year-old plant into a modernized dairy processing research and education plant laboratory.

Construction is expected to start in June, with completion in the summer of 2011.

All but $1 million of the project's costs are privately funded, with support from members of the Jackrabbit Dairy Council. The council is composed of dairy industry partners and private individuals from across the country.

SDSU President David Chicoine (SHEE'-kwihn) says these public-private partnerships help students, agriculture, the dairy sector and the economic well-being of South Dakota.
