Biography

Phillip grew up in Aiken, South Carolina and attended Clemson University for his Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science. He attended Oklahoma State University for his Master of Science degree in Animal Science and his thesis research focused on the effects of fertilization of pasture or supplementing cattle with distillers grains on cattle performance and forage growth characteristics. After earning his M.S., Phillip attended Auburn University for his PhD. His research there focused on evaluating different nitrogen delivery methods for stocker cattle grazing annual ryegrass, including: fertilization of the forage, interseeded clovers, or supplementation of cattle with different protein sources. This research looked at cattle performance, forage growth and nutrient characteristics, and carrying capacity of the pastures. Phillip began working at WKU in 2019.
