Despite cool morning temperatures, sunny skies brought out a record crowd of 91,000 to the seventh annual Rutgers Day, where visitors had the opportunity to learn about the research, service and education taking place at New Jersey’s only Big Ten research university… The Rutgers New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station used Rutgers Today to unveil the Rutgers Scarlet Strawberry, which went on sale to the public for the first time at the master gardener plant sale Saturday morning. The Scarlet Strawberry, in development for the last 10 years, is bred to thrive in the New Jersey climate… Meanwhile, at the start of the 4H State Dog Show on Cook Campus, a band of about 20 deer ran around the perimeter of the show grounds. "It felt like we were on the Serengeti!" said Jean Scalea Bjugstad, who was attending the show with her son, Julian, and his Collie/Newfoundland dog, Bear. "All the dogs sat up and took notice and there was lots of barking."
