I teach two undergraduate courses, ANSC240-Dairy Cattle Management, and ANSC315-Applied Animal Nutrition. My research interests include energy metabolism and nutritional factors that regulate milk fat synthesis in the lactating dairy cow. The objective being to tailor milk fat production and milk fat composition to meet changing consumer demands.
