Associate Professor, Extension Economist
The Livestock Economics program is led by Shannon Neibergs and focuses on developing new economics-oriented extension programming for livestock producers and industries. The state-wide Extension program focuses on applied economics related to livestock enterprises in the following areas: 1) management education on record keeping and the financial analysis of business performance, 2) identifying the economic cost of livestock diseases and the economic benefits of their control, 3) production and marketing of value-added enterprises, 4) and the economics of livestock and the environment interactions such as livestock waste management, and forage grazing issues. Each of these program areas uses interdisciplinary teams. Program findings and educational materials are delivered through workshops, seminars and publications.
