Quail joins NDSU North Central Research Extension Center

Lacey Quail is the new livestock management specialist at the NDSU North Central Research Extension Center in Minot.

Lacey Quail has joined the North Dakota State University North Central Research Extension Center as a livestock management specialist.

Quail will serve as the lead specialist for the center’s statewide livestock programs by providing leadership for livestock management to Extension agents in north central North Dakota. She will collaborate with stakeholder agencies, industry, livestock organizations and crop commodity groups to teach and provide comprehensive livestock management programming.

Before joining NDSU, Quail worked as a research assistant in reproductive management and beef production at Texas A&M University.

She earned a Ph.D. and M.S. in physiology of reproduction from Texas A&M University and a bachelor's degree in animal science from South Dakota State University.

“As a steward of land and livestock, how we manage nutrition, reproduction, genetic progress and health of our animals are all critical to the success of an option,” Quail says. “I am excited for this position because of the integrated role it holds with livestock producers and county Extension agents across the state who are all working towards a common goal.”

“Welcoming Dr. Quail to our team brings a surge of excitement, as her expertise and passion for all facets of livestock management promise invaluable contributions to North Dakota's producers,” says Shana Forster, North Central REC director. “Her arrival heralds a new era of innovation and progress, fostering a brighter future for the livestock industry.”

In her spare time, Lacey enjoys baking, going to cattle sales, hiking and driving her antique pickup.
