Welcome Lee Schulz!!
Welcome to Lee Schulz, our new ISU Extension livestock economist! Lee grew up on a cow-calf farm in central Wisconsin, and earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, a master’s degree from Michigan State University, and a doctorate from Kansas State University.
“Iowa State University is well recognized for its excellence and leadership in the field of economics and its commitment to extension. I’m excited to join the faculty,” he said. “The livestock extension program at Iowa State has a long, storied history that I look forward to maintaining and building upon.”
Schulz will focus his efforts on a range of integrated research and extension activities, with particular focus on livestock industries. His broader interests cover aspects throughout the meat supply chain, ranging from production level supply issues to end-user consumer demand issues. He will provide leadership and expertise to relevant stakeholders and policymakers.
No doubt you’ll be seeing a lot of Lee in the next year as we get him involved in beef programs.
