Ohio University building large animal research building
(2007-12-16)
(WOUB) - Construction is underway on a large animal research facility at Ohio University.

It's got a price tag of nearly a half million dollars.

Jo Ellen Sherow is the Director of Research Compliance at OU.

She says strict regulations account for the big expense.

Sherow says a large animal research facility is badly needed at OU.

Without one, some projects have been hindered.

The new building is supposed to be finished by April.

The first large animal tenants will be a group of Alpacas.
