Alyshia is a graduate research assistant working on a Master’s degree for Virginia Tech in their Animal and Poultry Science Department. Her project is based on swine production and manure management. The ultimate goal is looking into nutrient production in Virginia’s pork industry specifically in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. This will be done by comparing production and nutrient generation within versus outside the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
