Animal Production Systems Engineering

Welcome to the website of ABE’s Animal Production System Engineering focus area. We devote our work toward a) ensuring sustainable development of livestock and poultry industries and economic prosperity at state, national and global levels; and b) improving quality of life for the rural communities. We strive to serve our stakeholders through student learning, mission-oriented research, and extension/professional services. Currently, our research and extension programs focus on air quality issues related to animal production, animal behavior and welfare, animal housing and environment control, and animal manure/nutrient management.
