Adams Co. DHIA
(Continued from Page 09)
The featured speaker for the
evening was William Heald the
new director of the State DHIA
Program at Penn State. Heald, a
former Chester County native,
comes to State College from The
Virginia Polytechnics! Institute
where he completed his graduate
degree studies, taught, and did
research for a number of years.
He is a lactation physiologist
specializing in mastitis. He
outlined to the group where the,
state’s DHIA program' has "been
and new innovative changes which
need to take place to keep the
program progressive.
Heald stated that expansion of
the State testing facilities and the
programs provided through DHIA
are vital. This has included moving
the program into a new testing
facility at Penn State and pur
chasing new testing machines to
replace outdated models. The new
machines will test for both but
terfat and protein.
Heald sees protein testing as the
trend of the future already being in
demand by producers, processors,
and the A.I. industry. He sees this
as DHTs chance to lead the in
“After all, protein is what we’re
really selling. With only 40 percent

'consumption, component pricing is
coming. No one wants to pay to
have water hauled over the
roads,” he said.
• The hardware involved in the
testing program is being in
corporated to be more efficient
both in time and operating costs.
Computers in the lab are now being
“married" so that they are in
corporated into one complex
computer, eliminating the need for
extra technicians.
Heald said he would like to
{purchase SIOOiOOO of the hardware
necessary for the DHI to do its own
data entry work. DHI presently
rents computer space from the
University. Dr. Heald agrees that
this looks like, a large-sum, but in
five years the investment could
return that value three times in the
savings on rented computer time
and space. “Through automation
DHI. hopes to/serve you better,
faster, and more efficiently,” he
Heald notedthat current trends
have shown that AM-PM testing is
now DHTsmost’ popular program.
With this program more herds can
be tested with the present number
of supervisors and studies have
shown that it is the second most
accurate-of the testing programs
preceded only by the owner
sampler program. Heald cautions.
