ANFS holds 6th annual picnicOn Friday, May 10, the Department of Animal and Food Sciences (ANFS) held its 6th annual Student and Graduate Picnic, with this year’s theme being “The Hungry Games,” from noon to 1:30 p.m. on the Webb Farm.

The picnic was organized by students in Tanya Gressley’s dairy production class. Gressley, associate professor of animal and food sciences, had her students divided into teams of three or four and assigned each team a specific task—such as designing t-shirts, collecting photos and creating thank you posters for the staff—to complete.

Beautiful weather, cow print table clothes and balloons helped add to the festive nature of the day as Gressley and Jack Gelb, chairperson of ANFS, welcomed everyone to the event and offered remarks on the graduating seniors.

The farm staff was thanked by the students, some of which put on a skit to show their appreciation to the farm staff that has helped them out over the years.
