Upon completion of his bachelor’s degree, he began a master’s program at the University of Florida under the supervision of Luiz F. Ferraretto. McCary’s program focused on strategies to improve the nutritive value of whole-plant sorghum silage, which culminated in his review titled “Current perspectives on whole-plant sorghum silage production and utilization by lactating dairy cows.” Since his graduation, McCary has joined Purina Animal Nutrition and is pursuing a career as a dairy nutritionist.
