Interest AreasDr. Harmon worked cooperatively with Dr. Xin in the development of the Livestock Environment and Animal Physiology (LEAP) Laboratory, a state-of-the-art energetics lab that has been used to evaluate heat and moisture production from early weaned pigs and poultry. Other projects include the investigation of emergency carcass composting procedures, evaluation of outdoor air quality associated with deep-bedded hoop systems for swine production, biofilter effectiveness for odor control and evaluation of swine and beef performance while housed in deep-bedded hoop systems.
