Rose Acre Farms Contributes $200,000 to Purdue University Animal Science Complex

by Mark Whittington | Mar 23, 2018
Rose Acre Farms, the nation’s second largest egg producer, has contributed $200,000 to Purdue University’s new animal sciences complex dedicated on the school’s campus.

Rose Acre Farms employs several alumnae from Purdue University's Department of Agriculture and Animal Sciences and works with the institution on research projects involving agriculture and animal welfare.

“This is a perfect way to celebrate our ongoing partnership with Purdue,” said Rose Acre Farms Vice President David Hurd. “We look forward to more great advances in animal care from our collaborative efforts.”

By the end of 2018, family-owned Rose Acre Farms will have added more cage-free laying hens than any other U.S. egg producer in the last five years. That makes them the nation’s leader in the cage-free egg production. With animal welfare top-of-mind, Rose Acre Farms assisted Purdue with designing a new layer house built with technology which allows for increased ventilation and increased social interaction for the hens, among other uniquely designed features.   

“These wonderful state-of-the art classrooms, laboratories, and interactive spaces bring together students, faculty, and staff in ways that will foster collaboration, spark new ideas, and move the animal industry forward,” said university President Mitch Daniels. “We are very grateful to everyone who helped make this day possible.”

The celebration represents the culmination of a three-year process for a facility which stands as an example of the university’s commitment to Indiana’s food animal production industry by establishing a center for interactive student learning and research. 

The new complex features facilities including the 90,000-square-foot Hobart and Russell Creighton Hall of Animal Sciences, as well as extensive research laboratories, classrooms for interactive learning, and conference rooms for Extension activities.

Rose Acre Farms, based in Seymour, IN, employs more than 2,000 people in eight states.

    It is indeed a good cause and a movement. You don't see such companies or organizations doing so much for wildlife and nature. I have been really impressed with the way they have things summed up. Good one

    This is great to hear about. I'm glad a big egg producer is giving back like this. I always prefer cage-free eggs as I feel they are a better quality egg and healthier for my family. This just encourages me and hopefully other to buy their eggs. 



Rose AcreTM Recipe of the Month

Texas-Style Egg & Potato Skillet
  • 4 slices turkey bacon, chopped

  • 1 medium baking potato, diced (½ inch)
  • 8 eggs, beaten
  • ½ cup pico de gallo OR chunky salsa
  • ½ cup shredded smoked Cheddar cheese
  • 6 white or whole wheat flour tortillas (8-inch) (optional)
  1. Cook bacon in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until edges begin to brown. Pour off drippings. Add potato; Cook and stir until potato is tender and browned and bacon is crisp, 6 to 8 minutes.
  2. Pour eggs over mixture in skillet. As eggs begin to set, gently pull the eggs across the pan with an inverted turner, forming large soft curds. Continue cooking – pulling, lifting and folding eggs – until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains. Do not stir constantly.
  3. Stir in pico de gallo; Heat through. Sprinkle with cheese. Serve with tortillas, if desired.
