I’m pleased to introduce Dr. Tess Stahl to the SEBS/NJAES community.

Tess has an associate degree in business management from Warren County Community College, and a B.S. degree from Delaware Valley University in Doylestown, PA ,where she majored in Livestock Science and Management with a minor in Dairy Science.
Tess went to graduate school at the University of New Hampshire and studied growth promoters in post-weaned heifers under advisor Dr. Peter Erickson. She finished her M.S. degree in December 2019, and completed her Ph.D. in July 2023. Her research was focused investigating colostrum production and bioactive compounds in Jersey cows.
Tess will be leading research and outreach programs to New Jersey livestock farms, with a particular focus on ruminant animals (including llamas and alpacas) for the production of meat, milk, wool, and fiber.
