Jeffrey Stevenson named 2012 American Society of Animal Science Fellow
July 16, 2012 – Jeffrey S. Stevenson, current Kansas State University Animal Science and Industry faculty member, will be named a 2012 American Society of Animal Science Fellow for his research into cattle reproduction. He will be honored at the society’s national meeting in Phoenix, Arizona.
Stevenson’s current research involves examining factors that impact reproductive management in order to enhance reproductive efficiency in beef and dairy cattle. Stevenson joined the KSU faculty in 1980, establishing a laboratory and scientific instrumentation for him and the university. While conducting his own research to investigate factors responsible for issues with cattle reproduction, Stevenson advised multiple graduate students who benefited from the use of his lab and his experience. Stevenson established his lab not only as a service unit for his own important research, but also created cooperative efforts that could be used by students and coworkers as a training facility.
Stevenson received his B.S. in Dairy Science from Utah State University, his M.S. in Dairy Science from Michigan State University, and his Ph.D. in Animal Physiology from North Carolina State University. Since his time at KSU, Stevenson has had 142 referred publications nine book chapters and 138 peer presentations at professional meetings. He has served as the Section Editor for the Physiology and Management section of The Journal of Dairy Sciences, and has served on the editorial boards for both The Journal of Animal Science and The Journal of Dairy Science.
The ASAS Fellow is presented to animal scientists who have made excellent contributions to the animal industry and have had continuous membership in the ASAS for a minimum of 25 years. The American Society of Animal Science is a professional organization that serves more than 5,000 animal scientists and producers around the world.
