Staff Spotlight: Dan Kent Thursday, April 28, 2022
I grew up in New Jersey where the family farm centered around Christmas trees, sheep, and cattle. I came to Nebraska at 18 to attend UNL, and received a Bachelor's in Mechanized Systems Management. My time spent here was mostly divided between the Rodeo Program, and working for the Ruminant Nutrition department. I currently live in Palmyra with my two dogs named Maggie and Goose.
What is your position in the department?
Research Tech III and Rodeo Advisor.
How long have you worked in the department?
I'll have been here three years this August.
What do you enjoying outside of work?
I enjoy hunting, fly fishing, golfing, and wrenching on whatever wanders into my driveway. My two dogs demand the remainder of my free time for fetch.
What is something most people don't know about you?
I attended UNMC for two years working on a PhD in Agricultural Health and Safety.
