LOGAN, UT - Dale Zobell, Utah State University Extension beef specialist and professor in USU's animal, dairy and veterinary sciences department, is making a difference in Indonesian university animal science programs. He has travelled to the country three times in the last two years to assist farmers and researchers with animal product issues.

   

Two of his trips were part of the U.S. State Department Fulbright Senior Specialist's Program. Zobell learned about the program through a colleague and world-renowned water buffalo specialist at the University of Mataram in Lombok, Indonesia, who came to USU on the program to learn the latest technology and updates in animal science. Zobell applied for and was accepted into the Fulbright Program, and it has been of huge benefit to his colleagues and subsequently farmers in Indonesia as he traveled there and helped faculty members design animal science curriculum and improve their research techniques.
