Meet the instructor

Haley Larson, Ph.D.

Haley Larson, Ph.D., is a teaching assistant professor of animal health at Kansas State University's Olathe campus. 


Larson earned her B.S. in Animal Science and Ph.D. in ruminant nutrition from the University of Minnesota. Her graduate studies focused on understanding how manipulation of growth and fermentation patterns in feedlot cattle effects animal performance. While completing her degree, Larson began working as a senior scientist for Cargill Animal Nutrition and Health. In that role, she designed and developed the company’s dual-flow continuous culture system – the first fully automated dual-flow system for cattle rumen simulation. This system, and the data she generated, is still being used for new product development and fermentation modeling within the company today. During her time with Cargill, Larson was also presented with many opportunities to develop and deploy on farm technologies for dairy, beef, swine, poultry and aquaculture.

Larson teaches and advises graduate students in various programs related to animal health. She teaches several animal health graduate-level courses within the department of applied and interdisciplinary studies as well as the College of Veterinary Medicine’s diagnostic medicine and pathobiology department. Her teaching interests involve topics such as regulatory affairs for animal health and nutrition, research strategies for product development, zoonotic pathogens in the food chain and the interconnections between animal nutrition and health. Her passion for educating the industry’s next generation of agricultural professionals shines through in her courses, particularly those focused on interdisciplinary approaches in animal agriculture. In her role at K-State Olathe, Larson designs academic courses and professional development programming tailored to Greater Kansas City's growing animal health industry.
