Dr. Tucker is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Animal and Dairy Sciences at the University of Georgia, located on the Tifton Campus. Raised on a beef cattle operation in South Central Kentucky, she grew up learning how to utilize grazing management and improve the pastures on her family's farm. She began at the University of Georgia in January 2016, after being the Alabama Extension Forage Specialist (Auburn University) for three years. Previously Dr. Tucker worked at UGA in a post-doctoral position in the biomass for bioenergy program at Tifton Campus. In 2010 she obtained her Ph.D at the University of Kentucky, where she studied the effect of new novel endophyte tall fescue varieties on the physiology and growth of beef cattle.
At UGA, Dr. Tucker serves a split appointment and works to streamline her research/extension efforts to focus on improving beef nutrition and forage management utilization in Georgia and across the Southeast. Currently, Dr. Tucker’s program focuses heavily on the influence of alfalfa interseeded into bermudagrass on beef-forage systems. The main objective of Dr. Tucker’s program is focused on improving beef nutrition and forage quality and utilization while extending the grazing season in the Southeast.
