Teaching elective veterinary student rotations at GPVEC and statewide extension activities focusing on animal health and production management for both producers and veterinary practitioners
My primary interest is in production system management—helping producers and veterinary practitioners utilize sound science-based information to make decisions about animal health programs, husbandry and management protocols, and nutrition in order to be successful in the beef industry.
