AUBURN, Alabama—Courteney Holland joined the Alabama Cooperative Extension System as an equine specialist.  Holland will focus her work on equine management issues and support of the horse industry in Alabama.  In addition, she will provide guidance to Alabama 4-H horse programs.

“We are excited to have Courteney as part of our Extension Animal Science and Forages team,” said Dr. Paul Mask, Extension assistant director for agriculture, forestry and natural resources. “An Auburn University study several years ago showed the horse industry has a more than $500 million direct impact on the state’s economy so it is vital that we have a professional focused on horses.”


Holland, a native of Springville, Alabama, holds both a bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Auburn University in animal sciences.  She is a member of the American Society of Animal Science Southern Section and serves on the board of directors of the Alabama Horse Council.

She said that she is looking forward to working with horse owners and people across the state who have a passion for horses.

“I am excited to join Alabama Extension and about working with people to improve their horse knowledge and management skills,” said Holland.
