Who We Are

Our Story


B & D Genetics LLC is located in Cherry Valley, AR, and is owned and operated by David Carwell.  David graduated from Arkansas State University in 2008 with his Bachelor’s degree.  That same year he was accepted into the master’s program at Louisiana State University under the guidance of Dr. Robert Godke and Dr. Glen Gentry.


B & D Genetics was formed out of the passion David has for small ruminants and helping producers achieve their goals within their herd.
