Livestock and Collaboration in China

Rajesh Jha (HNFAS) recently returned from China after teaching the summer intensive course “Livestock Ecology” to the students of Northwest Agriculture and Forestry University in Xianyang. He has been serving as a visiting professor at the university for last three years. This assignment led to the development of a collaborative research project with faculty there focused on “Poultry Nutrition and Gut Health.” During his stay there this past summer, he also spoke with college administration about possibilities for increasing student enrollment in the 3+2 program in Animal Science in HNFAS. The first student in that program, Linge Li, recently successfully defended her master’s thesis in Animal Science under Rajesh’s supervision.
