Dr. Cassida works towards building sustainability of agroecosystems through inclusion of forage and cover crops. Her research and extension programming focuses on alfalfa and grass management for hay and haylage, use of perennials and cover crops as pasture for cattle and sheep, and the interactions among soils, plants, and animals in integrated crop-livestock systems.
