Miles Community College With a significant donation from Northwest FCS, Miles Community College is making strides toward building its Agricultural Advancement Center to support the growth of agriculture, eastern Montana's primary industry. Set to open in March 2017, the Ag Advancement Center will have an indoor arena, three classrooms and seating for more than 500 people. It will also accommodate rodeos and community events. Gifts to Colleges and Universities We have long partnered with universities to source quality employees, share information and support industry initiatives. We intend for our partnerships to benefit rural communities and the customers we serve. Education and Research The speed of discovery is increasing; technology is creating a revolution in every industry it touches, including agriculture. Those who learn, understand and adopt technology as well as the evolution of plant, animal and ecosystem sciences will be miles ahead of those who don't. We invest in the research and leaders who will advance our natural resource industries as they continue to find new ways and efficiencies to feed, shelter and clothe a burgeoning world population.
