Scott L. Kronberg

Research Animal Scientist

Scott Kronberg started working at NGPRL in October of 2000. He has graduate degrees in range science with emphasis on range animal nutrition and behavior from Montana and Utah State Universities, and a bachelor's degree in zoology from Arizona State University. He was on the faculty at South Dakota State University in the Department of Animal and Range Sciences for 7 years before coming to NGPRL. He has been conducting research on nutrition and feeding behavior of grazing livestock for about 25 years. He began this work while a graduate student and research assistant at Montana State University in the early 1980's and continued it as a graduate student and research assistant with Utah State University. Scott has also worked as a post-doctoral research associate at Montana State University and at the ARS's sheep research station near Dubois, Idaho. Scott plans to continue his research in ruminant nutrition and feeding behavior in respect to improving the nutritional value of red meat, reducing winter feeding costs for cows, and helping develop integrated crop and livestock production systems that are more economically and environmentally sustainable. Scott is a member of the American Society of Animal Science, the American Society of Agronomy, and the Ecological Society of America.
