My research at UC Davis focused on innovative heat abatement for dairy cows specifically evaluating more water and energy efficient technology. We found two methods that were more energy and water efficient than a typically approach in California, one that utilizes soakers and fans, and one with convective cooling. We then evaluated the convective cooling approach on a commercial dairy. I also evaluated the use of drool as earlier indicator of heat load in dairy cows, which is supported by our data.
I am now working for Cornell University Extension, as the Southwestern Dairy Management Specialist. My responsibilities are to complete outreach, education, and applied research in the Southwestern portion of New York.
