Livestock & Natural Resources
Welcome to the new information center for livestock producers and natural resource managers in Plumas, Sierra and Butte counties. This site is designed to provide technical resources, syntheses of information, scientific research updates, and more for local stakeholders.
In October 2017, I joined the UCCE team as the livestock and natural resources advisor serving clientele in Butte, Plumas and Sierra Counties.
In this role I will conduct extension, education and applied research focusing on livestock production, economics, and sustainable range and pasture management. I will seek to develop effective solutions to the complex issues facing commercial livestock producers on natural resource issues such as water quality, rangeland health, wildlife habitat, and public lands management.
