Darren Henry has been named an assistant professor of sustainable livestock grazing management with Texas Tech's Department of Animal and Food Sciences, according to officials within the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. He officially stepped into his new post on Nov. 1.
Henry indicated that he is interested in continuing his research efforts in manipulating and characterizing ruminal fermentation and enteric methane production.
One of his primary goals here at Tech is to provide data that will lead to advances in the mitigation of environmental impacts of beef and dairy cattle production, and to provide a solid educational base for undergraduate and graduate students that will allow them to excel in the years to come.
Prior to joining the Tech faculty, Henry worked as a research assistant at the University of Florida's North Florida Research and Education Center; a research assistant at the Universidade de Sao Paulo in Brazil; and a research assistant at Texas A&M University. He also served as a teaching assistant at the University of Florida, and a undergraduate research assistant at Texas A&M.
Henry received his bachelor's degree in animal science and agriculture leadership-development from Texas A&M, and master's degree in animal sciences from the University of Florida. His doctorate in animal sciences is from the University of Florida.
Recent awards for Henry include being named an International Livestock Congress Calgary fellowship winner (2014); recipient of the Best Masters of Science Thesis Award from the University of Florida's Department of Animal Sciences (2014); and PhD student of the Year from the University of Florida's Department of Animal Sciences (2016).
