TRACK OPTIONS AND REQUIREMENTS
Doug Smith, PhD"Being raised on a farm/ ranch set the path of my career, I knew I would not be able to return home to the family operation so I looked at other opportunities and my passion so education of others about the livestock industry is where I positioned myself for a career. I enjoy teaching and coaching others in selecting the right kind of livestock as well as how to make the production system work. I love to discuss with others about where their food comes from and how we manage it."
