Since 2008, I have been a researcher in INIFAP Mexico (like USDA) mainly focused on forages and dairy cattle nutrition. My interest is the dietary level protein efficiency in dairy cows and nutrient management to reach sustainable systems. I will be working my first trial in Mexico in Spring 2016 testing the use of triticale to replace other sources of forage (corn silage and alfalfa) and asses the milk performance, nitrogen efficiency and ammonia emission.
