To Scholer Beef Unit from Campus

Take River Road out of town (under the railroad bridge, past the water treatment plant). Get off the 4 lane 231 extension and get back onto the small two lane River Road.

Follow it all the way to Greenhill (no turns, just a few curves, up hills, and past the golf course - The Ravines).

(Weave your way through Greenhill.) You'll go straight until you see where the road takes off to the left (or goes straight and down a little hill - don't go this way). Once you turn left on that street you'll go about a block and the road will turn back to the right and go past two houses and then turn left again and continue on out of town with a couple of small turns and up a hill. You've now left Greenhill. Stay on the paved roads for now.

You will pass about five buildings (on the left) then there will be nothing but fields on both sides.

When you come to the place where you see the power sub-station and a gravel road straight ahead and off to the right, turn left.

Follow this up and down through all the hills (tip - don't do more than 40 mph as this part of the road is *very* rough and tumble).

When you head up the last hill, you'll see where the paved road turns right and a gravel road goes straight on ahead.  Go straight on ahead - do not follow the paved road any more or you'll end up in never-never land in the middle of Warren county.

Once on the gravel road, you'll go a little way down the road and pass a house (on the right). Just past the house will be a set of *sharp* turns.

After you get through the turns, you'll go on down the road a little bit and see the sign for Scholer Beef Farm, Purdue University.

The driveway goes back and splits. One way goes to a small house set back in the trees and the other fork takes you to the barns. The office is in the back part of the first barn/shed you come to.


To Scholer Beef Unit from ASREC

Take county road 500 west to Otterbein. At the 4-way stop in Otterbein, turn right and go through town. Stay on this road (County Line Road) and cross Highway 26. When you come to the next stop (there should be a gravel road directly across from you), turn right towards Greenhill.

(Weave your way through Greenhill.) You'll go straight until you see where the road takes off to the left (or goes straight and down a little hill - don't go this way).
