UW-RF Faculty Attend Dairy, Animal Science Meetings

Four UW-River Falls faculty members recently attended the American Dairy Science Association-American Society of Animal Science-Canadian Society of Animal Science joint annual meetings in Quebec City, Canada. The meetings, held July 20-24, were attended by more than 3000 students and professionals from the United States, Canada, and other countries.

Those participating in the meetings were: Dennis Cooper, professor of dairy science; Gregg Hadley, assistant professor of agricultural economics; Steve Kelm, assistant professor of dairy science and Gary Onan, assistant professor of animal science. Onan lives in Ellsworth; the others reside in River Falls.

The professors attended symposia, oral sessions and poster sessions presented by professional members of the organizations on topics related to their teaching, extension and research interests. These included ruminant nutrition, nutrient analysis of forages, livestock and dairy management, undergraduate teaching, animal comfort and environment, reproductive physiology and many others.

During the oral sessions, Hadley presented two dairy-related scientific abstracts based on research he conducted at Michigan State University as a graduate student.

Cooper and Kelm, along with five students from the UW-RF Dairy Club, also participated in activities of the Student Affiliated Division of the American Dairy Science Association. ADSA was established in 1906 as a scientific and educational association to serve the dairy and dairy-related industries. It facilitates the discovery, application and dissemination of dairy science knowledge and information.
