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....
