Brookings, S.D., grass seed company hires SDSU extension range management specialist.

Eric Mousel and Megan Nelson recently joined Millborn Seeds, Inc.

Eric Mousel has been an SDSU Extension range specialist since 2005. He will continue to work with livestock producers in his new position as Millborn's forage and alfalfa specialist.

Mousel grew up on a commercial cow/calf operation near Hastings, Neb.; he received his undergraduate degree from Kansas State University and spent two years managing a large cattle ranch in Kansas. Managing large groups of grass-cattle on open range influenced his decision to pursue a doctorate in range and forage management from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

"I have seen first-hand how critical forage management is to the sustainability and success of a cattle operation," Mousel says.

His graduate research focused on grazing management. Mousel will call upon his years of experience and research when helping Millborn customers maximize the productivity of their grazing acres and hay fields.

"I think this position combines the work I did at SDSU with the experience I gained as a ranch manager to provide practical management recommendations to producers who are trying to maximize the productivity potential of their ground," says Mousel who will continue to work as an adjunct professor of animal science at SDSU.

Nelson is a graphic design and advertising graduate of South Dakota State University. Nelson spent most of her professional career in customer service. In her new role as customer support specialist, Nelson will work closely with Millborn's commercial customers.
