Dr. Jordan Shockley

Associate Extension Professor
University of Kentucky

Dr. Shockley is an Associate Extension Professor and Farm Management Specialist within the Department of Agricultural Economics at the University of Kentucky.  His mission is to provide economic opportunities to U.S. producers by conducting meaningful, applied research in Farm Management and Poultry Economics and effectively communicate those opportunities to positively influence the success of producers statewide.  The past two years, Dr. Shockley’s focus has been carbon markets in the U.S. and the opportunities they provide to crop and livestock producers, as well as woodland owners.  Understanding and communicating the economics and risks facing farmers surrounding carbon programs has led to state, national, and international invitations to speak on the topic.  While Dr. Shockley has a majority Extension appointment, he also teaches an upper-level undergraduate class in Agricultural Financial Management.
