Daniel F. Waldron is professor of animal breeding and genetics for Texas A&M AgriLife Research in San Angelo. Waldron received his bachelor’s in animal science and agriculture and applied economics from the University of Minnesota, St. Paul in 1983. He received his master’s (1987) and doctorate (1990) in animal breeding and genetics from the University of Illinois, Urbana.
The goal of Waldron’s research program is to determine effective ways to select the parents of the next generation, in order to produce better animals. His current research projects include evaluation of Dorper and Rambouillet ewes for lifetime lamb production, estimation of amount of genetic variation for early breeding season fertility in meat goats, and selection for increased consumption of cedar in goats. Waldron also administers the Texas A&M Central Performance Tests for Rambouillet rams and Angora goats.
Professional societies include the American Society of Animal Science since 1995, the New Zealand Society of Animal Production since 1990, and the International Goat Association since 1997.
