About Me: Beth Burritt

I grew up in Atascadero, California, a rural community near the coast.  I raised market lambs in 4-H to earn money to buy a horse. At age 11,  I was finally able to buy my first horse. I am not from a farming or ranching family. I have a BS from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and an MS from Utah State University, both in animal Science.

I have 30 years of experience in the areas of livestock behavior and ruminant nutrition. I spent most of my career conducting research on how livestock learn about foods—which to foods eat and which to avoid.

I currently work as an Area Rangeland Extension Agent in the three northern counties of Utah (Box Elder, Cache and Rich). My primary focus is understanding and modifying the diet selection of livestock and wildlife to meet land management goals, reduce costs for producers, and improve sustainability of grazing operations.
