Dr. Matthew Garcia will join the College of Science & Engineering family at the start of the fall semester as director of Ranch Management. He comes to TCU from Utah State University, where he served as associate department head and associate professor.
Most people hear “Ranch Management Program” and think exclusively of cowboys and cattle. However, TCU’s College of Science & Engineering Ranch Management Program is far from restrictive. The diverse and comprehensive curriculum covers everything from soil and water conservation to animal feeding and finance. Alumni are involved in various fields, such as law, grocery management, finance, and pharmaceutical sales.
Matt McLennan has been named the new Houston Livestock and Rodeo Professor in Ranch Management at Texas Christian University. McLennan graduated from TCU’s Ranch Management program in 1992. After graduating, he worked in stocker cattle production and cow calf production in eastern New Mexico and in Comanche, Texas. McLennan managed the Beaumont Ranch south of Fort Worth for four years. This led him to the cattle feeding and stocker operations of the Panhandle area of Texas.
The Ranch Management Program joined the College of Science & Engineering in April 2019. The program is uniquely designed to train students to meet the challenges and help shape the future of agricultural resource management.
