Bourg becomes Extension beef specialist

A Louisiana native has joined Mississippi State University's Extension Service as a beef specialist.

Brandi Bourg grew up in south Louisiana and was involved in the Junior Simmental Association and state livestock program. She earned her bachelor's degree from Louisiana State University, where she was a member of the Livestock Judging Team, active in the Block and Bridle Club and a student worker at the beef unit. She earned her master's and doctorate degrees from Texas A&M University and has experience in research and teaching.

Mark Crenshaw, interim head of MSU animal and dairy sciences, said Bourg will focus on farm-to-feedlot programs, stocker cattle, feeder calf board sales, heifer development programs and the Deep South Stocker Conference.

"Dr. Bourg will give beef producers the latest information in applied beef cattle management and help them improve efficiency," he said.

Bourg can be reached by e-mail at or at (662) 325-7465.
