Dr. Steven C. Loerch received his BS from Penn State University in 1977, his MS from the University of Illinois in 1979, and his PhD from the University of Illinois in 1981. He has been on the faculty of the Department of Animal Sciences at The Ohio State University since 1981. Dr. Loerch strives to enhance understanding of basic biological processes through applied beef cattle and sheep research. His research program is directed to discover nutrition and management strategies which have immediate impact on the efficiency and profitability of beef production and on the quality and nutritional characteristics of beef. He has four focus areas: 1) nutrition and management strategies for newly weaned calves; 2) manipulation of intake to improve production efficiency and carcass characteristics; 3) low cost winter feeding programs for beef cattle and sheep; and (4) utilization of alternative feedstuffs as a replacement for high priced corn.</p>
