Construction work has begun on the new First Financial Bank Poultry Education Facility at Southern Arkansas University.

Contractors are moving earth to prepare the base for the building, which is located northwest of the Agriculture Building on the west side of the campus.

Ground was officially broken last October.

First Financial Bank of El Dorado is one of the nation’s largest poultry lenders.

The new complex consists of three phases. It will allow students to observe and interact with different aspects of poultry production – from breeder to hatchery, from broiler to processing. It will contain a feed storage room and a classroom/laboratory.

Southern Arkansas University added a new poultry science degree option beginning this fall.
