Four Leading Researchers will discuss "New Revelations in Transition Cow Nutrition"
Director of Technical Services
Professor, Michigan State University
Barry Bradford is the Clinton E. Meadows Endowed Chair in Dairy Management and Nutrition. Through his research, Bradford aims to better understand the metabolic physiology of dairy cattle to identify strategies that will improve the economic and environmental sustainability of dairy production.

Prior to joining MSU, Bradford spent 13 years at Kansas State University as a professor of animal sciences and industry. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Iowa State University, before earning his Ph.D. at Michigan State.
Professor, Cornell University
Mike Van Amburgh is a Professor in the Department of Animal Science and a Stephen H. Weiss Presidential Fellow at Cornell University where he has a dual appointment in teaching and research. His undergraduate degree is from The Ohio State University and his Ph.D. is from Cornell University. He teaches multiple courses and leads the Cornell Dairy Fellows Program, advises approximately 50 undergraduate students and is the advisor for the Cornell University Dairy Science Club. Mike currently leads the development of the Cornell Net Carbohydrate and Protein System (CNCPS/CPM Dairy), a nutrition evaluation and formulation model used worldwide. Through the modeling effort, he focuses on enhancing the efficiency of nutrient use by ruminants to improve the environmental impact of animal food production.
Assistant Professor Nutritional Physiology
Dr. Heather White received her BS in 2005 from St. Mary’s College and MS and PhD from Purdue University. After serving as a post-doctoral fellow at Indiana University School of Medicine, she joined the University of Connecticut as an Assistant Professor in 2011. She joined the University of Wisconsin–Madison as an Assistant Professor in Nutritional Physiology in 2013 and earned tenure and promotion to Associate Professor in 2018. Dr. White’s research program focuses on the health and nutrition of dairy cows during the transition period and is centered on hepatic and whole-animal nutrient partitioning and metabolism. Notably, her research strives to determine the mechanism of nutrient partitioning, feed efficiency, and metabolic health in order to provide science-based solutions and interventions to improve dairy cow health and productivity. Dr. White is also mentor and instructor at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Additionally, Dr. White is serving as the Faculty Director of the Dairy Innovation Hub. Dr. White lives in Albany with her husband and two sons, Gabe and Alex.
Professor, University of Florida
Dr. José E.P. Santos is a Professor in the Department of Animal Sciences at the University of Florida where he conducts research and extension in dairy cattle nutrition and reproduction. He earned his DVM degree from São Paulo State University in Brazil in 1992, completed the M.Sc and Ph.D. degrees in 1995 and 1997 at the University of Arizona, and a clinical residency in Dairy Production Medicine in 2000 in the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of California Davis. Before joining the University of Florida, José spent 8 years as a faculty member in the Department of Population Health and Reproduction in the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of California Davis.
