Trevor Devries completed his entire post-secondary education at the University of British Columbia. He then spent one year doing post-doctoral research with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada investigating the interaction of feeding behaviour and nutrition in dairy cows. In 2007, Trevor began his career with OAC at its Kemptville Campus. Trevor’s research program takes an integrated approach by collaborating dairy cattle nutrition, behaviour and welfare. He studies the feeding behaviour of dairy cattle from infancy to adulthood, evaluating and identifying housing and nutritional management to optimize their productivity, health and welfare. His research has established that housing and feeding strategies may be used to help calves develop healthier eating habits that may carry over to their milk production years. Trevor’s research has earned him international recognition including the 2013 Cargill Animal Nutrition Young Scientist Award and 2014 Lallemand Animal Nutrition Award from the American Dairy Science Association.
