Harley Naumann



Associate Teaching Professor

Division of Animal Sciences

Harley Naumann has a research/teaching appointment in forage physiology. His research focuses on understanding the critical physiological components of warm and cool-season forages that lead to improved forage-livestock production systems. In particular, he is interested in the production of biologically active polyphenol-based forage plant secondary metabolites and their role in plant-animal interactions. Harley’s research program also expands into the areas of forage ecology, ruminant nutrition, and cellulosic bioenergy production.
