SR121 (34th St.) to CR237. Make a right at CR237.
3. After turning on CR237, you will immediately come to the town of Hague. Drive through
Hague, cross the railroad tracks and go about 1/2 mile. The DRU will be on the right. There will be a UF sign identifying the
DRU at the entrance. Turn right.
4. Proceed down the long drive to the main building which is at the end of the drive. At this point, the drive forms a circle in
front of the main building and there is a sign with a painting of a Holstein in the center of the circle. You are there. Park
your car in the parking lot on the left and wait for Dr. Hansen.
Note there are some landmarks on US 441 to let you know you are on the right path. The first landmark is Deerhaven
