Thanks to the LG Social Committee for organizing a fun "team-building" activity at lunch.

We all had a blast.

March 13, 2019

Livestock Gentec sponsored the graduate student symposium. LG had three PhD students participate, where Seyed Ali Goldansaz gave an excellent oral presentation on Metabolomics and sheep mastitis, and Jiyuan Li and Xuechun Bai participated in a poster competition.  All students presented very well, and Xuechun Bai won in the poster competition as one forge top three posters!
