FARGO (AP) — Two new projects at North Dakota State University are aimed at crop and livestock research.

Gov. John Hoeven’s office said he joined campus and state officials at Friday groundbreaking ceremonies for NDSU’s new research greenhouse and Beef Cattle Research Center.

The greenhouse is to help with research in plant breeding and crop varieties while the Beef Cattle Research Center’s work will include animal nutrition, genetics and food safety.

Hoeven said the first phase of the research center is expected to be finished by October, at an estimated cost of more than $700,000.
