Welcome Dr. Chris Teutsch! Plant and Soil Sciences new Forage Extension Specialist at Princeton.

On January 3, 2017 Dr. Chris Teutsch officially started as the UK Forage Extension Specialist in Princeton, KY. Dr. Teutsch earned his BS in 1994 and MS in 1996 in Crop Science from The Ohio State University before completing a PhD in Agronomy in 2000 at the University of Kentucky. He was an associate professor at the Southern Piedmont Agricultural Research and Extension Center at Virginia Tech for 16 years.

 Chris still has two graduate students who are completing their degrees at VT and will move his family to KY after his oldest son graduates from high school this June, but he has jumped into his new position with both feet. Chris has already given a keynote presentation at the recent Kentucky Cattleman’s Association annual meeting and gave one of the keynote presentations at the 36th Alfalfa and Stored Forage Conference on Feb. 21 in Cave City. We are excited to have Dr. Teutsch join our department.

His contact information is: Chris Teutsch, Extension Associate Professor at the Princeton Research and Education Center
