Expertise DescriptionI have more than 30 years of experience in the field of Animal Science with expertise in the fundamentals of animal nutrition. My experience includes lecturing graduate level classes as an Associate Professor and conducting research, which has dealt with identifying relationships between diet digestion, gut metabolism and nutrient absorption in ruminants and companion animals. I have worked with virtually all classes of ruminants, i.e. beef, dairy, sheep, goats, etc. My expertise is that I am a researcher. Predominantly I work with model systems for different classes of ruminant animals. My research into these areas has resulted the publication of over 170 scientific journal articles and I have supervised 36 advanced degree programs in these areas.
Areas of Expertise
I have a doctorate degree in Animal Science with a specialty in the study of the nutrition and feeding of ruminant animals. I’ve spent over thirty years studying how ruminants digest and utilize numerous feed ingredients and how these processes are influenced by various feed additives. My research into these areas has resulted the publication of over 170 scientific journal articles and I have supervised 36 advanced degree programs in these areas.
