Doug Landblom is presently serving as an experiment station specialist at the Dickinson Research Extension Center with primary focus in beef cattle nutrition and management. In addition to his beef cattle research, he has also conducted considerable swine nutrition research. Most recently, and in addition to his beef cattle research efforts, he has been charged to conduct a limited amount of equine nutrition research with the growing horse and gestating-lactating mares. Regardless of the animal species, he has always sought practical methods to reduce input cost. Current emphasis is a three year investigation to evaluate the economics of early weaning calves and retained ownership through final harvest. Calves in the project are intensively managed whereas cows are managed extensively grazing improved grasses, native range, and standing corn late fall and winter. Landblom is also studying the effect of weaning calf management on subsequent carcass quality at slaughter, since success in retained ownership programs relies not only on carcass weight but carcass quality premiums as well. Recent research at this Center and others is changing previously held beliefs relating to dietary energy level immediately after weaning; changes resulting in positive effects on final carcass quality.

A native of Montana, he earned B.S. and M.S. degrees from Montana State University in Animal Science.
