An investigation into how modern agriculture works, its controversies, and the science behind it all.
A South Carolina native, Bailey dreamed of living in a state like Oklahoma where many others roped cattle and competed in rodeos. After receiving degrees from Clemson, Kansas State, and North Carolina State University, he got that chance. Since 2003 he has taught undergraduate classes in the Department of Agricultural Economics at Oklahoma State University. He also has a research appointment where he studies consumer preferences for food and controversial agricultural subjects like farm animal welfare. Though he has forty journal article publications, he is most fond of his textbook, his book Compassion, by the Pound, his novel, and his forthcoming book, Agricultural Controversies.
