My major interest is to improve the efficiency of small ruminant production through applied research and extension efforts. My key interest areas include: efficient and sustainable lamb production systems, improving out-of-season  production, preventative health management and strategic nutritional management. In addition to working with both large and small scale producers, I lead efforts to teach undergraduates about small ruminant production and to train veterinary students in small ruminant production medicine.
