Cows, wildflowers and squash: Finding more sustainable food at UNH
That’s what it’s about – it’s helping people,” said McLean.
More food research is being conducted at Kingman Farm, a wide expanse of field in Madbury. Most prominent are the vast plots of squash overseen by the famous Dr. Brent Loy.
Graduate student Andrew Ogden and technician Renee Cantara neatened up long rows of winter squash and placed seedings in the planting holes previously passed over.
“It’s mostly aimed at cultivar improvement,” Ogden said of Loy’s studies. Better growing and better tasting breeds of squash, he added, will hopefully widen the selection of varieties found at grocery stores, and enlarge the market.
The man himself, Dr. Brent Loy, was found in the station’s fifth facility, the MacFarlane Research Greenhouses.
“I’ve got a zillion projects,” Loy said. He does cooperative research with various seed companies, and right now he’s most interested in producing a butternut squash variety higher in vitamins and its indicator, an orange pigment called carotenoid.
“I’m trying to increase the quality of those because a lot of what the market is using is poor quality,” he said.
Loy’s seedlings are just some of the leafy material filling the 20,000 or so square feet of greenhouses. Greenhouses manager David Goudreault said there are also ongoing studies on genetic breeding for strawberries as well as an experimental aquaponics growing system.
In a system with fish, their excrement for fertilizer, and their water filtered by growing produce, Goudreault said the study is looking at how to enhance greenhouses in colder months. Both plants and fish are the harvested product.
“It’s a completely closed system,” said Goudreault.
At the dairies
Fairfield Dairy seems like any other dairy barn: cows line the walls awaiting the next milking, calves poke their noses curiously out of their stalls, the strong smell of unpasteurized, freshly squeezed milk in its holding tank wafts through the air. But some things are a little different, like a sign asking people to text graduate student Kayla Aragona if they see calving in the process.
That sign, said dairy manager of 33 years Jon Whitehouse, is to help Aragona with her study of feeding niacin to a pregnant cow. When the calf is born, Aragona takes blood samples of mom and baby cow to see how the supplemental vitamin helps the quality of the first milk the cow has available for her calf.
The expectation, said Whitehouse, is that the milk will pass on higher levels of immunity to the calf.
“So then there’s a healthier animal,” he said.
In her experiment, Aragona is also testing a device called Moocall, a motion detector placed on a pregnant cow’s tail that, when she’s contracting just before calving, sends a text message to the farmer.
One particular cow wasn’t a fan of the $300 device hanging off her tail, and tried to get it off by banging it against the wall.
“It was sending (Kayla) tests all the time – it was driving her crazy,” Whitehouse said. In general, though, he added, “It’s a pretty neat device – it’s something a common farmer can buy.”
Whitehouse added that all the studies at Fairfield Dairy are an effort to help the state’s farmers.
“Anything to make the herd healthier,” he said. And anything to boost protein in cow’s milk, which at higher levels, demands a higher milk price.
