Modern agriculture

The Bergische Universität as a guest at the Wuppertal farm 'Gut zur Linden

Dear calendar audience,

"Old McDonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O...", many of us still know this song from our childhood days, when we used to imitate the sounds of the animals while singing. Farm life is still associated with the feeling of vacation and romance for us, although farms have changed over the years to meet the changing demands. This year, our calendar picture series features the Vohwinkel farm Gut zur Linden, a modern, 16th-generation family farm that, in addition to farming and raising livestock, also maintains a farm store where regional products can be purchased.

Our 12 scientists* participate in different actions and were supported animal, mechanical or vegetable. With these pictures you will get an impression of the versatile work on a modern farm, whose history goes back to the 15th century.

As always, you can read the stories about our scientists' projects on the back pages of the calendar.

I am pleased to present our fifth transfer calendar and hope you enjoy looking at it as much as we enjoyed creating it.
