Virtual Illustrated Talk: Hoofprints in History, the Role of the Domestic Dairy Cow
Join the Friends of Fort Hunter in a virtual illustrated talk with Dr. Barbara Corson, a life-long area resident of the area, amateur historian and a hobby farmer.
Dr. Corson will highlight the roles of cattle in history, mostly because as she says, “no one else seemed to be doing it and I thought someone should. After all, cows were fundamental to civilizations around the world, including our own area… but in my lifetime the small dairy farm has all but disappeared.”
Fort Hunter was an active dairy farm in operation from about 1870 to 1920s. Join us in learning more about the important history of domestic cattle and the fate of dairy farms like the Reily’s at Fort Hunter.
Dr. Corson is a retired veterinarian (from the Pa Dept of Agriculture) who loves all kinds of history and all kinds of animals.
The virtual lecture is free.
