I traveled to Fort Collins, Colorado this past week to meet with faculty at Colorado State University about a project I am doing for The Pork Board. The two days of meetings were very informative and I learned a lot; I also learned there's a lot I don't know!
I got to the Hilton at 11 on Monday night; due to overbooking (or something like that) I was comped a king size room with two tvs couch, work desk - the works. Pardon my excitement but I felt like a celebrity.
Tuesday I met with Dr. Terry Engle, Dr. Dave Anderson, Dr. Lily Edwards - my major professor and also Dr. Bernie Rollin. We discussed protocols, procedures and a timeline. Looks like we won't be starting the actual trials until early May but that's ok -- I've got a lot of reading to do.
Wednesday I holed up in my exquisite room and worked on a summary of our meeting and also entered data from my first research trial. A mere 4 hours later, I had accomplished my entire day's worth of objectives!
I didn't take many pictures while in Fort Collins but I did snap this one outside of the Dean of the College of Agriculture's office. Makes me proud of my cowgirl/Western heritage! More from my Colorado trip soon.
Until next time,
