Agronomists Soil Testing May 15

Today we began testing our soil samples from Pukemata to learn how to conduct the test.  Once we are confident, we can carry out the test in the field whilst on the job.  We learnt about extracting, pipetting and comparing to a colour chart. This is how the industry does it!  

Angus also shared with us what a "ruminant" is and we started to look at the anatomy of the animals on a farm.  I look forward to the posters explaining ruminants and their health issues!
