Ogunade, Ibukun

Assistant Professor of Livestock Production

Ibukun Ogunade received his BS and MS degrees (2009 and 2011, respectively) in Animal Nutrition from the University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Nigeria, and PhD in Ruminant Nutrition (2017) from the University of Florida. He joined the Division of Animal and Nutritional Science at West Virginia University in September, 2020. Prior to his current appointment, Dr. Ogunade was a Research Assistant Professor of Livestock Nutrition at Kentucky State University. Dr. Ogunade’s Livestock Nutrition Lab at WVU is studying how nutritional interventions, including sustainable use of feed additives, impact the gastrointestinal microbiome and metabolome of ruminant to improve efficiency of ruminant production systems. His research program also applies metabolomics and metagenomics to understand the mechanisms that cause differences in feed efficiency of ruminants. His research program has attracted grant supports from government and private agencies. He is an ad hoc reviewer for several journals including Journal of Dairy Science, Animal Feed Science and Technology, Scientific Report, and Journal of Animal Science.
