By Jenna Wegner
UW-RF University Communications
MAY 5, 2006--Through the generous support of alumni, two students in
the University of Wisconsin-River Falls College of Agriculture, Food and
Environmental Sciences have been selected as Fund for Excellence Student
Cassandra Torhorst, a senior from Oregon, Wis. majoring in animal science,
will be working with animal science Professor Gary Onan to analyze the
relationship between lysine, backfat depth and fertility of the University
Lab Farm sows. Matt Rahmlow, a senior from Mishicot, Wis. majoring in
agricultural business, will be working with Professor Stan Schraufnagel
and Farm Operations Director Bill Connolly to develop a record-keeping
system for the swine enterprise on the University Lab Farm that addresses
the unique issues the farm faces as both a teaching facility and a business.
Each student will be awarded $2,500 to support his or her research project.
The project must utilize the facilities and resources of CAFES. These
include the laboratory farm, the greenhouse, the pilot plants and/or any
of the other discipline specific laboratories.
Through the Fund for Excellence campaign, these Student Scholars will
continue the strong tradition of student-faculty collaboration in CAFES.
