Agriculture biosciences firm Premier BioSource is building its first Indiana farming facility in Rensselaer.

The company will invest nearly $7.5 million to construct and equip a 78,000-sq.-ft., 600-sow, farrow-to-finish farm operation in Rensselaer, according to Area Development.

Premier BioSource’s pigs will be used solely for biomedical research and product development, contributing to advancements in heart stents, cardiac repair and rejuvenation, diabetes and insulin research, and surgical procedures.

The company plans to complete the facility by June 2019.
