You may have met Jennifer Weinert-Nelson, a Ph.D. candidate here at the Equine Science Center. While she has been a student at Rutgers, she has helped me out on lots of projects! She even had a hand in creating the new Equine Science 4 Kids! activity book. While Mrs. Weinert-Nelson spends plenty of time here at the Equine Science Center, she’s also completed some pretty cool research utilizing the pastures at the Ryders Lane Farm. She is close to completing her research and wrapping up her time here at Rutgers. I thought this would be the perfect time to learn a little more about what she has been working on.
Watch the video to hear Mrs. Weinert-Nelson’s interview and learn about her research.
What did you think? She’s done some pretty cool stuff. I always think her research is some of the best because it involves pasture grass and eating! It doesn’t get any better than that! (Well, doughnuts might make it slightly better.)
I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into what’s happening with the research here at the Equine Science Center!
Until Next Time.
