Scholer Purdue Beef Farm

High Tensile Fence

Scholer Pastures

    The Scholer Farm is very similar to the other Purdue farms.  This is demonstrated by the fencing system and pasture management techniques.  What makes Scholer unique is a recent development which utilizes a natural spring as part of its watering system.  The focus of this tour will be on the spring fed watering system.
The picture on the left illustrates the poor watering conditions at Scholer and how underutilized the spring was.  The right hand picture shows how the spring has now been harnessed.  Please continue to see how it was done.
