Featured rangeland expert

Larry Redmon, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension program leader and associate department head of the Department of Soil and Crop Science, is December’s featured expert.

“Dr. Redmon’s background and roots run deep in rangeland management, even his Ph.D. is in rangeland science from Texas A&M,” said series co-coordinator Morgan Treadwell, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension rangeland specialist, San Angelo. “But, most importantly Dr. Redmon sees a unique big picture and offers creative strategies that embody stewardship.”

She said that Redmon will summarize dynamics on Texas rangelands.

“Rangelands are a source of infinite plant and wildlife genetic diversity and provide enormous economic and intrinsic value to society,” Redmon said. “However, rangelands are under tremendous threats from many fronts. The unlikely potential savior for rangelands will surprise you.”
