"Animal Range Science Dept." is the topic on MontanaPBS' Montana Ag Live at 7 p.m. on Sunday, April 10. The show repeats at 11 a.m. on Sunday, April 17.

Dr. Glenn Duff, animal nutritionist and Montana State University's animal and range sciences department head, discusses the vision of the department and the plans for their new facility.

The new, 40,000-square-foot Animal Bioscience Building opened last fall and offers state-of-the-art classrooms and laboratories for instruction and research to more than 250 students studying animal science, natural resources and rangeland ecology. It was built with generous contributions from Montana's agricultural community and benefits MSU students greatly. It also benefits producers by helping to ensure an educated workforce for Montana agriculture.

Montana Ag Live is a regular call-in program on agriculture and gardening in Montana. Presented by MontanaPBS in association with Montana State University Extension, the program hosts panels of experts to discuss everything from pesticide use, and large-scale agricultural techniques, to backyard gardening questions, and even which mushroom to pick in the woods.
