Dr. Patrick Okara Eburu

Lecturer II
Animal Science
patrickeburu@unical.edu.ng

I am Dr Patrick OkaraEburu from NyanyaUlim in Bekwarra LGA of Cross river state. Am a lecturer in the department of Animal Science, University of Calabar. I was born to Mr David E. Odey on 3/6/1983. I have a Ph.D. (in fatty acid metabolism in ruminants) from the University of Essex, England (2016); M.Sc. degree from the University Essex, England (2012) and a first degree (First Class Hons) from Cross River University of Technology, Calabar, CRS of Nigeria (2009). My research interest is on manipulation of rumen fermentation towards improved feed utilization, production of healthy ruminant food products, in an environmentally friendly manner(using natural additives).
