UD research farm

On November 4th, we have a meeting that was led by Scott Hopkins at research farm around University of Delaware ‘s south campus. We started with introducing the characteristic UDairy ice cream. Mr. Hopkins then showed us the daily life of poultry in the webbfarm. Although, I learned how cow was fed and the milking processes here. Through the entire processes, we visited the different main areas in the farm.  Although I have class in south campus everyday this semester, I have never walked and observed the surroundings. When I saw the calf and their living environment, I was surprised how they can be arranged and taken care of well.  Usually, these calves stay here for 3 months and they look really cute like a dog. If I have opportunity, I will feed a cow!
