Dr. Mabry's teaching activities focus on the development of educational programs in swine breeding and genetics and swine data management record systems.
Dr. Mabry's research focuses on the development of breeding strategies that maximize profitability of swine production systems, development and implementation of cross-herd genetic evaluation programs in swine, and usage of swine data management systems.
Dr. Mabry's extension responsibilities include the administration of the Iowa Pork Industry Center and work with producers on swine breeding and genetics improvement programs and swine production record systems.
