Faculty Spotlight: Mary Drewnoski Wednesday, September 1, 2021
I grew up in the mountains of North Carolina and am the first person in my family to ever go to college. Here at UNL, I have a 70% extension appointment with the rest being research. I am a ruminant nutritionist by training but I work on a systems level, collaborating with colleagues in Agronomy and Ag. Economics. I spend most of my time assisting cattle producers with using crop residues and annual forages as feed resources. I enjoy learning new things and being able to use that knowledge to help people.

I was born and raised in Ho Chi Minh City, the busiest city of Viet Nam. Therefore, transferring to the peaceful Lincoln, NE was quite a change that I've loved since. Right after coming to the US, I started an M.B.A program at UNL. I then worked at the NE Department of Labor and the Department of Health and Human Services before coming to the Department of Animal Science. It has been intriguing to come back to UNL in a different role.
What is your position in the department?
