Michael Undi has joined NDSU's Central Grasslands Research Extension Center near Streeter, North Dakota, as an animal scientist.
Undi grew up in Zimbabwe and earned a degree in animal science at the University of Zambia. He then moved to Canada, where he earned a master's degree in ruminant nutrition from the University of Saskatchewan and a doctorate in forage utilization from the University of Manitoba.
Before joining NDSU, he was a senior lecturer in animal science at the University of Namibia, senior lecturer in the Department of Agriculture at the University of Zululand in South Africa, and an instructor and research associate in the Department of Animal Science at the University of Manitoba.
His research will focus on exploring strategies for reducing winter feed costs in dry-lot and pasture-based beef herds in the northern Great Plains.
