ISRC Marking 10th Anniversary

ISRC celebrates 10 years

The ISRC will celebrate its 10-year anniversary on July 1. To mark the occasion, the center is planning a number of events throughout the year.

  • Throughout 2024, the center will sponsor department seminars, providing funds to bring in experts from outside Iowa State to speak on soybean-related topics. 
  • On May 2, the ISRC, the Iowa Food and Family Project, the Iowa Egg Council and the North Central Poultry Association will host an omelet breakfast for ISU students in recognition of National Egg Month at the Memorial Union. The event will help educate students on the connection of soy to the egg industry (aka poultry feed contains soybean meal), as well as providing a hearty breakfast the week before finals. 
  • On June 18, the ISRC and the Artificial Intelligence Institute for Resilient Agriculture will host the Iowa Soybean Association Board for a research day at ISU.
  • On July 1, at 2pm, the ISRC will hold a brief reception in the Agronomy Hall Commons area to celebrate the 10th anniversary of when the center was officially established by the Iowa Board of Regents.
  • On August 1, the ISRC will host their annual Meals from the Heartland meal packaging event again during Soybean Month in Iowa thanks to Cargill’s financial sponsorship and efforts of nearly 50 ISU volunteers. The event will be held at the Hansen Agriculture Student Learning Center. 
  • In August, the center will host an industry/farm tour for ISU graduate students, faculty and staff.
  • On September 5, the ISRC will host a research day for its industry partners, highlighting research funded by the center followed by the center’s annual Industry Advisory Council meeting September 6.
