Dennis Hancock graduated from the University of Kentucky with a doctorate in crop science and a masters in plant and soil science after obtaining a bachelor's degree in agriculture from Berea College. Here are his thoughts as University of Georgia Extension forage specialist:
"My mission is to effect a true change in the efficiency of forage production and utilization in Georgia and beyond. By emphasizing the integrated use of proven methods and technologies, I will help our forage producers to improve yields, stand persistence, and input use efficiency, decrease the threat to our environment, and increase profitability. My approach will be to share my knowledge and findings from applied research, in concert with the work of colleagues in this and other disciplines."
