Dr. Gordon Jones retired in 2010 as professor of animal science after 40 years on the faculty at Western Kentucky University (WKU). During his tenure at WKU, he taught Introduction to Animal Science, Meats and Meat Products, Beef and Swine Production, and Animal Breeding. In addition, he was involved in the beef industry in KY and presented many programs on various aspects of the beef industry. Beef Cattle Selection and Mating Systems have been topics of major interest to Dr. Jones.

Jones served six years on the beef improvement committee of the Red Angus Association of America (RAAA), and he is currently a member of the technical committee of RAAA. Dr. Jones and his family have been involved in the swine seedstock business for over 50 years, and he is presently involved with his family in the Red Hill Farms Red Angus and Simmental operations. He works with commercial producers in planning selection programs and crossbreeding systems.
