Farm Bureau Insurance Gives $100K to SAU's New Poultry Science Facility

Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Co. of Arkansas Inc. recently donated $100,000 to Southern Arkansas University's new poultry science facility.

The gift was made to the SAU Foundation, and it will support the construction of a new poultry house on the north side of the Agriculture Center.

David Moore, the company’s executive vice president and general manager said in a news release that, as the leading provider of agricultural insurance services in Arkansas, Farm Bureau Insurance assumes a responsibility of helping customers make informed buying decisions. 

"Our partnership with Southern Arkansas University is unique in that it provides educational opportunities for our customers and staff," he said. "Plus, it assists SAU in providing learning activities for students who want to be involved in the poultry industry. Southern Arkansas University, Farm Bureau, and the surrounding communities all win."

In recognition of the company's gift, the building will be named the Farm Bureau Insurance Agriculture Education Facility. It will also have a Farm Bureau Insurance Broiler/Breeder Room inside. 

New signage reflecting the Farm Bureau name will be installed as well, to direct students and guests to the facility.
