Working as an Extension Professor, my area of expertise is manure management methodologies, including microbial dynamics, composting and anaerobic treatment. I have led a 10-year study of water quality impacts from livestock on the Animal Research Center. My team has developed a multidisciplinary research and extension program focused on compost bedded pack barn management. I have led the Environmental Stewardship session of a nine-session Master Cattleman Program. I have an interest in biofilters and the impact of barn design on CBP.
