After Dr. Greenwood completed her B.S. in Animal Biology at the University of Guelph and M.S. in Animal Science at the University of Alberta, she then completed her Ph.D. at the University of Guelph where her graduate research focused on understanding protein metabolism in ruminants with nutritionally induced metabolic acidosis. Dr. Greenwood moved to New Zealand to become Assistant Professor at Lincoln University, where her research focused on nutritional strategies to alter nitrogen metabolism in dairy cows to reduce environmental nitrogen losses and alter milk protein profiles. Dr. Greenwood will continue to focus her research on dairy cattle nutrition in her role as Associate Professor in Animal Nutrition. She will also continue to emphasize the use of alternative forages and byproducts as nutritional strategies to manipulate dairy outputs in her rsearch program at UVM, and will teach Animal Nutrition, Metabolism and Feeding (ASCI 110).
