ISU faculty member to work with livestock producers


A new faculty member in Iowa State University's Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering is researching and working with livestock producers on manure management and water quality matters.

Daniel Andersen started in August as an assistant professor after working at Iowa State as a graduate research assistant while a graduate student. He earned master's and doctorate degrees in agricultural engineering from Iowa State, and a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.

"I grew up on a smaller dairy farm in Wisconsin and have a strong appreciation for animal production," Andersen said. "My goal is to improve soil, water and air quality by promoting manure management systems and nutrient utilization practices that are environmentally sustainable, economically feasible and socially acceptable."

Andersen has been working with beef producers to design vegetative treatment systems to be more effective in controlling runoff from feedlots and with swine producers to reduce foaming in deep-pit hog-finishing facilities.

"Dr. Andersen's research and extension program will help to fill a gap for ISU in the area of nutrient management and its impact on water quality. He brings the knowledge and expertise we need to help producers to best manage their livestock and cropping systems to minimize the impact on the environment," said Steve Mickelson, chair of the agricultural and biosystems engineering department.
