I’m finally seeing more animal scientists on Twitter. Industry folks have been on the site for a long time, and now more scientists are chipping in with links and news about their research. I think that’s great! Twitter is a good place to share animal science facts with the world.
Some of my favorite Twitter users:
@Bovidiva, aka. Jude Capper, studies beef and dairy cattle production. Capper is a sustainability consultant and an adjunct professor at Washington State University. She shares links related to her research, but she also chats with other twitter users and links to important ag news.
@TravisMeteer, aka. Travis Meteer, is a beef specialist for the University of Illinois. Meteer is one of the newer twitter users, but his tweets about the drought disaster make him a really good resource.
@MeatCounterMom, aka. Janeal Yancey, is a meat science professor at the University of Arkansas. Yancey runs the great Mom at the Meat Counter blog. On Twitter, Yancey posts links to the science behind hot topics like “pink slime” and “meat glue.”
@rachelendecott, aka Rachel Endecott, is a beef cattle extension specialist from Montana State University. She shares good links for producers. Endecott also has a good sense of humor as she travels to meetings and posts about life in Montana.
