James R. Russell
Professor of Animal Science
Iowa State University
313G Kildee Hall
Ames, IA 50011-3150
Doctor of Philosophy, University of Wisconsin: 1979
Master of Science, University of Wisconsin: 1975
Bachelor of Science, University of Wisconsin: 1972
2003: Pioneer Hi-Bred Forage Award (American Dairy Science Association)
2000 Merit Award (American Forage and Grassland Council)
1998 Forage Industry Merit Award (Iowa Forage and Grassland Council)
Dr. Russell teaches livestock and the environment (AnS 321X), integrated crop and livestock systems (AnS 515), and digestive physiology and metabolism of ruminants (AnS 519), and animal nutrition seminar (AnS 603)
Dr. Russell’s area of research is forage utilization systems that optimize long-term return on investment in beef production and improve environmental quality through improved resource and grazing management, winter grazing systems, and use of supplemental feeds for forages
