Tabler comes south

Thomas Tabler, a poultry specialist with industry and Extension Service experience, recently joined the Mississippi State University Extension Service. Tabler began work as an Extension professor in MSU’s Department of Poultry Science after teaching a year in Shungnak, Alaska, 20 miles north of the Arctic Circle. As an Extension specialist, Tabler will deliver education and outreach programs for the integrators and growers in the state’s largest agricultural industry, which had a production value of $2.44 billion in 2011.

He also will conduct research to find the most cost-effective poultry equipment, including feeders, lighting, fans and drinkers.

Tabler served as a poultry specialist for the Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service at the University of Arkansas from 1990 to 2011. Prior to his work there, he managed a diversified cattle, swine and poultry operation in DeQueen, Ark., that included four broiler houses producing five flocks per year.

Tabler received his bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees from the University of Arkansas in poultry science, general agriculture and animal science, respectively.
