Dr Neil Beck BSc Nottingham, PhD Michigan State

I obtained BSc in Agricultural Science from the University of Notttingham and a PhD in Dairy Science from Michigan State University.
My teaching includes Part 1 modules in Animal Science and Animal Physiology (in the Institute of Biological Sciences) and more specialised modules on reproduction and animal production science in Part2.
I conduct research into animal reproduction and my main areas of research are the factors affecting the embryo survival in juvenile ewes and the effect of late pregnancy nutrition on lactational performance in dairy cows.
My other interests include squash, tennis and fishing.
