Overview

  • Professor Conroy has been teaching people how to handle and work with farm animals for 30 years at the college level. Broadly trained in agriculture, he teaches 7 different Animal Science courses at the University of New Hampshire, with CREAM being his most well-known course. See: https://colsa.unh.edu/thompson-school-applied-science/cream At UNH his teaching focus is with dairy cattle, but he is broadly trained in Animal Science and is also well versed in handling goats, sheep, swine, beef cattle, and poultry. See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0lYP1SFLl0 A two-time Fulbright Scholar, his teaching, research and consulting have taken him to 14 times to Africa, where he has worked in Namibia, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, and Rwanda. See: https://www.unh.edu/global/drew-conroy His work in Africa has led to mentoring many UNH undergraduate students in research abroad, specifically on topics related to conflicts with wildlife and agriculture.
