Whitley Joins Noble Foundation's Agricultural Division
The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation has selected Evan Whitley, Ph.D., as manager of the Center for Advanced Agricultural Systems and Technologies (CAAST).

"The Noble Foundation is uniquely positioned to assist in the many challenges facing the agriculture industry," Whitley said. "The Noble Foundation's mission and goals directly relate to my personal goals. This was an opportunity to be a part of great work that I couldn't pass up."

Whitley received his bachelor's degree in range management, his master's degree in range nutrition and his Ph.D. in beef cattle science, all from Texas A&M University. He has spent the last three years working as a private consultant and contract researcher. Whitley previously worked for Dakota Beef as the director of livestock operations and executive vice president.

"Evan brings a wealth of knowledge to the Noble Foundation," said Billy Cook, Ph.D., director of the Agricultural Division. "His experience in consultation and research provides us with a skill set that will have immediate and long-term impact on the growth of CAAST, and help the agriculture industry maintain sustainability."

CAAST is one of the Noble Foundation's Centers of Excellence, which are focused on specific areas of research to help produce information applicable to agricultural producers. CAAST will conduct applied research focusing on agronomy, grazing systems, cover crops and cropping systems, range management, soil health, and beef cattle management and technologies.

As manager, Whitley will coordinate the center's research efforts and provide information to agricultural producers, researchers and strategic partners.

Whitley grew up in the farming community of Pilot Point, Texas. He and his wife, Kristy, have three daughters.
