Overview

Dr. Engle’s research focus has centred on the understanding and improvement of complex production traits in beef cattle, using innovative genomic technologies. Combining a practical, first hand knowledge of beef cattle production with robust experience in applied quantitative genetics, Dr. Engle has crafted a niche for herself in the area of genomic selection in tropically adapted beef cattle, with particular emphasis on female fertility and cow productivity traits. Her current work is developing genomic breeding values for novel cattle phenotypes, such as stayability, longevity, and heifer maturity, with the specific target of eventual commercial adoption by cattle breeders.
