Visit to the New Bolton Center and Dairy Farm

Yesterday, a small group of fellow researchers from Drexel and UPenn visited a dairy farm in Chester County to take a tour of the facilities.  Jake Price, Kaitie Sniffen, Dr. Mira Olson, Dr. Wen Shieh, and Dr. Chris Sales drove down to the University of Pennsylvania’s Veterinary School’s New Bolton Center in Kennett Square to tour the Marshak Dairy Farm.  The visit and tour were primarily to discuss novel ways of improving nitrogen and phosphorus (nutrient) management and recovery.  Although, some of the photos below show that seeing the cows themselves wasn’t so bad either.

Thanks to Penn Vet’s New Bolton Center for the tour!
