Animal Science Forum - Current Trends in Poultry Nutrition


27 March 2012

On behalf of American Soybean Association International Marketing (ASA IM) and the Poultry Research Foundation (PRF), we cordially invite you to:
Animal Science Forum "Current Trends in Poultry Nutrition"


When: April 26, 2012 between 09:00 - 15:30

Where: Veterinary Science Faculty, University of Sydney, Camden, NSW 2570

Key Note Speaker Biodata - Professor William Dozier

Dr. Dozier currently serves as an Associate Professor at Auburn University in the Department of Poultry Science. He received a B.S. in Animal and Dairy Science from Auburn University, a M.S. in Animal Science from the University of Kentucky, and a Ph.D. in Poultry Science from Auburn University.

He has been internationally recognized for his research determining dietary amino acid requirements of broilers. Dr. Dozier has evaluated apparent metabolizable energy needs of heavy broilers. Moreover, Dr. Dozier and colleagues were the first in the U.S. to determine the energy value of crude glycerin from biodiesel plants for broilers, layers, and swine and to develop prediction equations to estimate apparent metabolizable energy of corn co-products for broilers.

During his career, Dr. Dozier's publications include 42 senior-authored and 49 co-authored peer-reviewed manuscripts. He has also published 98 other written materials in the form of industry proceedings, popular press articles, and newsletters. Dr. Dozier has given 119 invited presentations at international, national, regional, and state levels. His research program has garnered approximately $1.6 million in extramural funding. Dr. Dozier served as co-chair of the Nutrition section of the 2005 Poultry Science Association Annual Meeting and currently is an Associate Editor for both Journal of Applied Poultry Research and Poultry Science. <br>
