Noble Research Institute as an owner and operator of over 14,000 acres of ranchland and an educational source for over 2,000 producers, is keenly interested in providing ecologically sound, stewardship focused solutions to farmers and ranchers in the southern Great Plains. Please join Noble Research Institute as they discuss the positive ecological services provided by the proper application of grazing management and prescribed fire. ABOUT THE SPEAKER Before coming to the Noble Research Institute in 2016, Goodwin was the state rangeland management specialist for U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Temple, Texas. Prior to that, Goodwin worked as the NRCS state grazing land specialist and provided leadership and coordination to the Texas Grazing Land Coalition. During Goodwin’s 14-year career with NRCS, he worked in multiple locations in Texas as a rangeland management specialist helping producers and landowners meet their management objectives. Previously, Goodwin worked as a research associate in the Texas A&M AgriLife Research Service Range Animal Nutrition Program in Vernon, Texas. Admission is free and all ages are welcome.
