He came to the Texas AgriLife Research and Extension Center in 1984 and was promoted to Associate Professor in 1990.
His research expertise is in ruminant nutrition, grazing management, livestock-wildlife interactions, animal behavior, and beef cattle production. Current research emphasis is on temporal and spatial patterns of diet selection, nutrient intake and utilization of beef cattle grazing semi-arid rangeland.

Integrated grazing and fire strategies to improve range condition and carrying capacity are being developed for Prosopis dominated rangeland.
