Kansas State University’s new swine birthing facility is now open.

School officials say the facility, which opened in late may, will give students experience that reflects their future professional work environments.

The facility is located north of the main campus at the K-State Swine Teaching and Research Center.

The project was largely funded privately, including donations from alumni and faculty, and will accommodate additional hands-on teaching ability as well as graduate and undergraduate research.
