ATI dedicates new beef cattle handling facility

ATI livestock student Emily Painter, pictured right, wielded the scissors at the ribbon cutting for ATI's new beef cattle handling facility on Oct. 12. About 100 people attended the program, which showcased the Temple Grandin-designed facility to the public for the first time. 

Providing backup for Painter were, left to right, Nels Hansen, chair of ATI's agricultural and engineering technologies division; Casey Meek, beef herd manager; Mark Schleppi, director of farm operations; Rhonda Billman, assistant director; and Bobby Moser, now-retired dean of CFAES.
