Swanson Joins NDSU Animal Sciences Department

NDSU’s Animal Sciences Department gains a faculty member.

Kendall Swanson has joined North Dakota State University’s Animal Sciences Department as an associate professor.

He holds a joint research and teaching appointment.

“We are excited about having Dr. Swanson join our faculty,” says Greg Lardy, department head. “His research and teaching skills will make a valuable addition to the department.”

Swanson’s research will focus on improving the efficiency of feed use and assessing alternative feeding programs to reduce feed costs in cattle feedlots and wintering beef cow feeding programs.

Before joining the faculty at NDSU, Swanson was an associate professor in the Department of Animal and Poultry Science at the University of Guelph in Guelph, Ont.

He earned a bachelor of science degree in 1994 and a master’s degree in 1996 from NDSU and a doctorate in animal science in 2000 from the University of Kentucky.
