Primary research interests:


Investigating intensive integrated tree-forage-livestock systems in order to raise livestock more sustainably, and specifically, understanding livestock interactions with forage, crops and trees in silvopasture systems. My primary goal is to develop a research program investigating the logistical, economic, environmental, and social dynamics of silvopasture systems in Missouri and the Midwest through the lens of efficient and responsible animal production. We seek to better understand how to optimize animal performance and nutrition using silvopastoral production practices while maintaining or enhancing ecosystem services and tree performance. A systems-level approach will be used to measure animal performance, health and welfare, and environmental impact. With this information, my goal is to develop scientifically-supported recommendations to producers to support silvopasture adoption.
