MU receives gift for the College of Ag, Food, and Natural Resources

The University of Missouri got another large gift Thursday benefiting the College of Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources.

MFA Incorporated and MFA Oil pledged $750,000 to the school.

The gift is meant to support agriculture research and education at MU by establishing an endowing professorship in Agribusiness.

University officials said such donations directly benefit the students.

“An endowed professorship like this is a tool. It’s a key tool in attracting and retaining the very best faculty, which is just what our students deserve,” said Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin.

MFA executives said the donation is also meant to show their appreciation for the college, and is a way to celebrate their historic relationship with it.
