CPP’s farm animals have been thriving this spring. Forty-three lambs and 25 goat kids have been born in the university’s sheep unit since mid-March, as well as 26 piglets and eight calves in the swine and beef units, respectively.
The W.K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Center is expecting four more foals to follow Dillon, born March 19, and Wenda, born last week. Animals on campus are used to teach students about the anatomy and physiology of domestic animals, reproduction, animal health and nutrition, and companion animal management.
