The systems approach enables her team to look at how all of the production pieces work together to form management recommendations for producers. Kim’s academic appointment at Auburn is 75 percent extension and 25 percent research. Her research program is focused on developing forage management and supplementation strategies that improve beef production efficiency and the economics viability of these systems.

I have many favorite memories from when I was a student at Auburn. My favorite College of Agriculture memory has to be traveling to the Sunbelt Ag Expo in Moultrie, Georgia, every year with the Ag Ambassadors to greet potential students and learn about new technologies in the agriculture industry. During my time as an undergraduate student, we were also in the midst of a long winning streak against Alabama in football, which led to many special memories with friends rolling Toomer’s Corner.
