The major areas of my research and extension interests are the effect of management on turkey production, turkey reproduction, and turkey waste handling.
My research activities include examining various rearing methods and feeding regimens for the production of market and breeder turkeys to determine optimum management practices. I am also interested in methods to reduce fecal and litter nutrients of turkeys and broilers. Extension educational programs and programming are also part of my activities.
