Graduate Students Join the Carrington Research Extension Center


As a scientist, one of the most rewarding things I get to do is work with graduate students. Working with graduate students is fun and challenging; they keep you on your toes and make life entertaining. Some of the important portions of a graduate program are learning to run research projects and collect data, gaining experience with laboratory procedures, and learning to run statistics and writing research results. One of my observations over time has been that no two graduate students are the same and learning how to teach each one is an experiment in and of itself. Over the past few months we have had two individuals join us at the in the Animal Sciences program at the CREC.

Rebecca (Becca) Moore joined us in June as a graduate student. Becca is working towards her Masters in Animal Science while at NDSU. Originally from Raymond, Wisconsin, Becca graduated from the University of Wisconsin Platteville in May 2019. Becca’s research at the CREC is focused on the use of soybean hulls as a forage replacement in drylot cow rations. Becca will be working from the CREC until August 2020 at which time she will move to main campus to complete her course work.

Wayde Rodehorst joined us this past week as a Research Specialist/Animal Science. Wayde is originally from Columbus, Nebraska and is a May 2019 graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. While working as a Research Specialist, Wayde will also be pursuing her Master’s in Animal Science. As a Research Specialist, Wayde will assist with a number of research projects and work with the crew at the livestock unit to accomplish daily tasks with the livestock as well as oversee a number of research projects. Wayde’s primary interests for future research are related to Ruminant Nutrition.

Anyone stopping by the CREC or attending Field Days will have the opportunity during the next few years to hear and learn about the research these two students have undertaken. We’re excited to have them onboard and look forward to making them a part of the team!
