Office Hours
by appointment.

My research and UW Extension activities are centered on the development of analytic decision making tools for dairy farm management and marketing. These software systems are being used by dairy farm operators, marketing consultants, and state and federal policymakers. In addition, I am specifically interested in providing support to the U.S. dairy complex in the use of price, cost and income risk management tools. These tools include the use traditional futures and options strategies, as well as governmental income insurance programs.
