A team of dairy oxen named Frye, left, and Burg were on display at Penn State's Ag Progress Days Aug. 13 through 15. Known a century ago as the 'poor man's horse', a tandem of oxen can pull up to 10,000 pounds. Ag Progress Days, held annually at Penn State's Russell E. Larson Agricultural Research Center in Rock Springs, provides exhibits and demonstrations on the latest innovations in the agricultural industry while giving attendees a glimpse into the long history of farming in Pennsylvania.
