PSU animal farM
Collegian Staff Writer
Penn State. like every good fariners
collegq, began with a barn full of animals and
119 years later the animals are still very
much a part of the University •
Under the divjsion of Animal Science in the
college of Agric!ulture, the University main
tains a poultry plant, sheep, beef and swine
barns as well as a stable of horses
The poultry plant
,is between the outdoor
swimming pool and Nittany halls and the
other barns are beyond Beaver Stadium
According to Glenn Kean. professor of
animal science. approximately 600 to 700
students see or have access to the domestic
animals "Mote students could have access to
them if they v. , Snted- to." Earl Kesler, pro
fessor of dairy sciefice. said
Classes involving the 40 University horses
remain the most popular classes, Kean said
Students may take classes in halterbreaking
and horse training as well as a more
generalized course. "Horse and Man."
David Nepp'( 11th-agriculture education) is
one of the students who work at the , beef

because they are an easy breed to work with.

Glenn Bressler, professor of poultry sci
ence, said his research is consumer and pro
duction-oriented. He said his work aims at
finding the least cost of producing eggs while
maintaining quality products.
'the average space for chickens in a coop
has been reduced from three feet to half a foot
in the last 25 years. Chicken cannibalism is a
problem that research has solved, Bressler
According to Kesler, the cattle and swine
are divided into two herds purebred and
commercial. He said purebreds have tradi
tionally been a better quality meat, but the
difference in quality has largely disappeared.
Kesler said the domestic animals at Penn
State never had it so good. "We have very
good conditions. The animals are well fed and
all their needs are cared for," he said.
Like students, all cattle are given numbers.
The purebreds are given names such as Bim

"Our business is not to get attached to the
animals so we can sell them for the most
money," Kean said.
Kean said there are 20 to 25 research
programs involving horses, sheep and hogs.
Research with chickens deals with behavior,
genetics, physiology, management, nutrition
and food science.
Also like students, animals are provided
with medical services. The animal Ritenour
is the Animal Maintenance Center.

(for animals) than an ordinary farm in the
