Title: Meat Duck Nutrition–Formulation Considerations across Genetic and Feedstuff Resources

 

 

Biography:

Todd J. Applegate, PhD is a Professor and Head of the Department of Poultry Science at the University of Georgia.  In that role, he is responsible for recruiting and building teams of faculty and students to effectively respond to challenges affecting Georgia and the global poultry industries through scientific research and technology transfer for efficient and environmentally sustainable production of poultry products while providing for optimal animal well-being.
Prior his current appointment, he obtained degrees in animal sciences from Ohio State and Iowa State Universities, and afterwards as a research associate at the University of Maryland. Preceding his current appointment, he served on faculty at Purdue University where he developed an active research program which complemented his outreach program by providing readily applicable research answers to everyday management and nutrition questions by the poultry industry.  Additionally, his research explores mechanisms of nutrient, pathogen, and mycotoxin interaction within and with the gastro-intestinal tract to ultimately improve nutrient absorption and retention. Todd has been a member of several national committees and most recently served as President of the Poultry Science Association, member of the national (US) Coordinating Animal Nutrition Committee of State Agricultural Experiment Stations, and past-chair of a USDA working group to minimize impact of animal agriculture on the environment.
