On Day 3 we visited Purina’s research farm. We got to see the horse, dairy cattle, beef cattle, and companion animal research areas. It was really interesting to see all of their facilities and what they do. Since I work at Wilco it was very informational for me to be able to go there, because I know a majority of their products so it was interesting to learn about them.
We then drove over to University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri. We toured their Agriculture Department. In their Animal Science area they had glow in the dark pigs. The reason for the glowing pigs is to be able to see if they carry a dominat trait for a gene. It was neat to see the differences between their College of Ag and ours at Oregon State.
