Senior Extension Associate, PRO-DAIRY
Jason Oliver, Ph.D. joined the PRO-DAIRY team as Senior Extension Associate of the Dairy Environmental Systems program in 2022.
Jason is from the Finger Lakes region of New York and has hands-on knowledge of regional farming operations and practices. Recognizing the importance of farms to our rural communities, State, Nation, and One Health (the unified health of humans, animals, plants and environment), he has dedicated his research and extension efforts to supporting the environmental stewardship of farming systems. His research interests include the development of practical biotechnologies for the treatment of emissions, effluents and greenhouse gases from livestock facilities. He has conducted extensive on-farm, applied research and worked collaboratively with industry stakeholders to address emerging issues and regulatory considerations including water quality, odor, antimicrobial resistance, and climate change resiliency. Jason is also a dedicated educator with diverse instructional experiences that include teaching at several land-grant institutions, extension work in the Midwest and New York, and four years developing and teaching an agricultural education program at a rural high school.
Jason has a B.S. in Environmental Biology from SUNY-ESF, M.S. in Ecology & Environmental Science from University of Maine, and Ph.D. in Biosystems Science, Engineering & Management from the University of Minnesota.
