Ruh awarded 1st place at MOSES
University of Minnesota graduate student, Kathryn Ruh, was awarded first place in the Organic Research Forum Poster Session at the 2016 Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service (MOSES) Conference held in La Crosse, WI, February 25-27, 2016.
Kathryn has been evaluating warm-season grasses (BMR sorghum sudangrass and teff grass) for incorporation into a pasture production system for organic dairy cows. Her preliminary results indicate that forage quality is very high in warm season grasses and that they are also high in digestibility. Her poster highlighted research objectives, results and conclusions of these forage systems. (View a PDF of her poster.)
Kathryn is originally from Two Rivers, Wisconsin and graduated with a BS in Dairy Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She is studying dairy science with the U of MN College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences under the direction of Brad Heins, Assistant Professor at the West Central Research and Outreach Center, Morris.
