Zhaohui (Edward) Yang is pursuing a M.S. degree in Animal Science, working under Drs. Gerald Shurson and Pedro Urriola. His research is focused around determining the feeding values, benefits, and limitations of novel high-protein distiller’s grains in swine diets.
Edward is originally from Guangzhou, China. He received his B.S. in Animal Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2016 and joined the swine nutrition group immediately after graduation. In these past years, he got involved with World Pork Expo, World Dairy Expo, and Leman Conference several times to help sharing information of the U.S. agriculture industry with international visitors. Edward loves working with people with diverse backgrounds, and would like to work for an international company or organization in the field of swine nutrition. In his free time, Edward enjoys playing soccer, cooking, and playing board games. He adopted a sweet kitty named “Jolin” last year, and playing with Jolin is now his new hobby.
