Spring is Here, Right?


The calendar says yes, the new calves at the Livestock Unit tell us yes, and my colleagues’ cheery-looking apparel choices agree as well. Despite the dreary weather and cold temperatures we are ready to look toward the new beginnings spring promises!

We are excited to announce that Dr. Bryan Neville has joined the NDSU Carrington Research Extension Center as Animal Scientist. Dr. Neville’s first official day in this position was Monday, March 26.
