New Animal Scientist!


Howdy! My name is Uchenna Anele and I’m the “new guy” in town. I am excited to join the Carrington Research Extension Center as the Animal Scientist. I grew up in Enugu in southeastern Nigeria. I trained in animal sciences in Nigeria earning B.S. and M.S. degrees in Agriculture (animal science major) and Pasture and Range Management, respectively. My Ph.D. was in forage utilization and ruminant nutrition from the University of Bonn, Germany.


Before joining the NDSU CREC, I was a lecturer in the Department of Pasture and Range Management, Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta; a postdoctoral research associate at Texas Tech University and a visiting research fellow at Lethbridge Research Center, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.

I have done lots of studies including integrated crop/livestock farming systems, forage utilization, ruminant nutrition, greenhouse gas abatement, and evaluation of non-conventional feedstuffs.

Moving forward, I will continue the drylot cow/calf system that the CREC is known for. I will focus on high priority needs of producers in the state. I will also undertake studies like the use of exogenous enzymes to improve fiber digestion of several co-products and crop residues generated in North Dakota; use of pre- and probiotics in the feedlot; and integrated crop/livestock approach to address high salinity soil issues in North Dakota.  

I look forward to meeting you in the nearest future. Feel free to drop me an email () or give me a call (701-652-2951) anytime.
