Welcome to the Department of Animal Sciences newsletter. Send your submissions to hendrick.17, and they will go in the next version.
Dr. Lisa Bielke and Dr. Sheila Jacobi joined the department in August as assistant professor of intestinal microbiology and assistant professor of non-ruminant nutrition, respectively. Please welcome these two talented scientists to the department. Both are located in Gerlaugh Hall, Wooster.
Congratulations to the 2015 summer semester graduates:
