Drs. Marco Costanigro of DARE and Jeff Callaway of FSHN co-organized the Liquid Arts Research Forum as a collaborative university-private sector effort to identify research needs and address broad issues cutting across industry segments and academic disciplines. The Forum set the stage to initiate Colorado State University-industry collaboration on high impact research projects. Field to Foam members include breeders, farmers, microbiologists, craft maltsters, brewers, distillers, distributors, engineers, equipment manufacturers and all other members of the supply chain. The program included a keynote address by Governor Hickenlooper and moderated breakout sessions on crucial Field to Foam topics.

On April 20th a group of CAS students met at the CoBank Center for Agricultural Education with the Board of Premier Farm Credit to present the outputs semester-long projects developed as part of a professional development initiative in conjunction between DARE and Premier Farm Credit.
The advisors, Dr. Alessandro Bonanno (left) and Dr. Rebecca Hill (right), posed on a picture with the six Premier Farm Credit Student Board of Directors (From left to right: Wade Sousa, David Ruybal, Thomas “TJ” Ascough, Shelbylynne Enke, Brady Linnell, Flint Corliss) before the students presented their work to the Premier Farm Credit president and Board.
The projects developed this year where financial educational information sheets for beginning and young farmers (which are available on Premier’s website here) and directions to creating a farm and estate succession planning workshop.
The Premier Farm Credit Student Board of Directors allows the students to work closely with Premier Farm Credit and their CSU advisers in projects where they apply the skills learnt in their classes to real world applications. At the conclusion of the project the student board was recognized for their efforts and given a stipend from Premier Farm Credit.
