Baxter is a professor of Soil and Crop Science at UW–Platteville, coordinates the Reclamation, Environment, and Conservation (REC) Program, and also serves as a statewide Nutrient Management Specialist for UW–Extension. He teaches courses including soil science, soil fertility, nutrient management and soil physics, and advises students in independent research projects.

This project aims to expand the capabilities of UW–Platteville to measure properties related to soil health and water quality, specifically soil wet aggregate stability and water infiltration, with the purchasing of a wet-seiving apparatus and three SATURO dual head infiltrometers.
