Associate Professor Donald G. McGahan is a graduate of the University of California Davis. Since 2008 he has worked at Tarleton State University in the Department of Wildlife, Sustainability, and Ecosystem Sciences. He also has an appointment with the Texas A&M AgriLIFE Research Center at Stephenville, Texas He has received recognition from the Governor of Texas for active cooperation and contributions to the United States Department of Agricultures eff ort to Soil Survey Texas US. He is a member of the American Society of Agronomy, Soil Science Society of America, and since 2011 has served as an Associate Editor for Soil Horizons Journal. Since 2013 he has been a Tarleton State University Faculty Fellow and is active in faculty development and the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). As pedologist and biogeochemist his interest include identifying systematic variation in soil morphology from soil genesis using relationships with climate, vegetation and biological organisms, geomorphology, and geology.
He is know to use multiple low and high technology tools to investigate soil and soil mineralogical alterations and relate these as vital to addressing landscape scale issues. This knowledge of soil “in the environment” and “of the environment” is applicable to site-specific soil management(s) including both land use for agricultural, and land use for non-agricultural soils and soil uses.Contact me for more info
Agnieszka BLITEK, Ph.D., D.Sc., is an Associate Professor, head of the Department of Hormonal Action Mechanisms in the Institute of Animal Reproduction and Food Research of Polish Academy of Sciences in Olsztyn. The main scientific interests of the Department are mechanisms involved in the regulation of the estrous cycle and embryo-uterine interactions during early pregnancy in pigs.
Dr. Blitek has been focused on identification of markers of endometrial receptivity for implantation, understanding the role of prostacyclin and its receptors during pregnancy establishment, as well as examining the effect of exogenous gonadotropins used to induce/synchronize estrus on the uterine preparation for implantation in the pig. She is currently studying the role of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPAR) during porcine implantation and placentation.Contact me for more info

Dr. Kimberly A. Guay up in Texas and attended Angelo State University earning a B.S. in Animal Science with a minor in Biology; and M.S. in Animal Science. She then moved to Lubbock, TX to attend Texas Tech University, where she graduated with a Ph.D. Animal Science. After graduation, she stayed at TTU as the director of a newly donated equestrian facility. During that time she managed the University’s herd and helped to develop Texas Tech’s Therapeutic Riding Program for the disabled.
In 2011 Dr. Guay made a change in direction and joined Dr. John McGlone’s Laboratory of Animal Behavior, Physiology and Welfare as a Senior Research Technician. Her projects involved the effects of cross-species pheromones on animal behavior and stress, as well as finding different ways to minimize stress and improve welfare in a variety of species. In 2013 she joined Tarleton State University as an Assistant Professor and continues to teach and investigate stress physiology and behavior.Contact me for more info
