I thought it would be interesting to know what kind of life he had and what he had to go through to become the professor that he is right now. Because I knew he was busy, I emailed him and asked him politely if I can interview him but he didn’t answer so I went up to him after my Animal Science lab and he told me to email him the questions. He still hasn’t emailed me back but he did give us some background information about himself on our first lesson on August 30. His family lived on a turkey farm in the mid-1900’s.

They had to change the farm to a cattle farm. Here they had 200 commercial brood cows. This farm has changed a lot throughout Dr. Updike’s life. For his education, Dr. Updike went to Virginia Tech and he was in the Animal and Poultry Sciences Department, where he joined the Livestock judging team and the Scientific mentoring. He also went to Ohio State University where he studied cattle, poultry, sheep, aquaculture in the Animal Science Department. Currently, he is a faculty advisor to Wye Angus where he is an extension beef spet. In this job he looks at the beef quality and reproductive management. He is also a professor at the University of Maryland, where he teaches Animal Science 101, Animal Science 103, Principles of Livestock Evaluation, and Livestock Management....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
