  • Dr Okpara Oghenesuvwe, a Registered Animal Scientist (RAS) is an intellectual of great repute in Animal Science, livestock nutrition, production and management. He is held in high esteem by his colleagues as a practical , versatile, active teacher and researcher, a good organizer and a manager of men and materials. My focus as a researcher is utilization of unconventional multipurpose browse plants, trees and shrubs fodders using different processing methods to reduce their anti nutritional factors and to enhance full utilization in animal nutrition because of their great potential as a source of high quality feed for ruminants and mono gastric animals.
