Farm School

Andy Dunn and Aaron Naber's apartment seems typical for male college students. A poster of a swimsuit model covers one wall. A beer sign leans against another.

But a horse is lounging where a front yard should be.

Naber and Dunn live inside the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Animal Sciene Building. They share space with livestock, rats and a cat named Rex.

They pay $75 a month to live just feet from their classes.

In exchange, they are always on call to catch a loose pig or drive a load of cattle.

UNL built the apartment in 1987. Department livestock operations manager Clyde Naber, by the way, also is Aaron's father.

There are some drawbacks to the apartment, however.

The building code does not allow an oven and explaining your home address is tricky.

Aaron Naber says, quote, "People think you live in a barn."
