DJ and Danya Buseman
DJ and Danya Buseman – November 21 Introduction
The Buseman’s show us how they feed the cattle on their farm.
Additional Resources: DJ talked about Earlage, which is how they harvest and store the corn to feed the cattle. When the corn is harvested, packed to get the air out, and covered in plastic (like a Ziploc bag) this process allows the corn to become fermented. This is kind of like turning a cucumber in to a pickle! Here’s a great link about the science of pickles. http://www.exploratorium.edu/cooking/pickles/index.html

Discussion: Danya told us that the cattle are excited when the feed truck comes. Why do you think that is?
