Dr. Shawn Archibeque, a ruminant nutritionist, began his scientific training and education at Colorado State University, where he earned a B.S. with a double major in Environmental Health and Animal Sciences.  He continued his training as a ruminant nutritionist at North Carolina State University.  Following his M.S. Shawn earned a Ph.D. at Texas A&M with Dr. Stephen Smith, an expert in adipose development of livestock species.  Shawn conducted research with the meat science components of beef cattle production, and it enabled him to apply cellular and enzymatic-based mechanisms for describing nutritional manipulations of beef carcass quality.

Dr. Archibeque was employed at the USDA Meat Animal Research Center as a postdoc Research Associate under the guidance of Dr. Calvin Ferrell. Shawn's program was focused on manipulating dietary regimens to optimize nutrient utilization and minimize negative environmental impacts of animals housed in confined feeding operations.  Shawn would like to continue to develop his research program to mitigate environmental issues without sacrificing productivity or carcass quality.

Dr. Archibeque joined the faculty at Colorado State University in 2006.  He teaches several courses focused on nutrition and environmental issues associated with livestock production, while his research program has continued to focus on issues associated with sustainability of agricultural systems with an emphasis on ruminant systems.

Shawn received his B.S. in 1998 from CSU, his M.S. in 2000 from North Carolina State University, and his Ph.D. in 2003 from Texas A&M.  Shawn is married to Deb Giebler and has one son, Winston.
