Angela R. Boyer, PhD, has an innate passion for animals and a desire to feed the world. Through her work as a research nutritionist, she works with animals and producers to influence the food supply. She is a sought-after animal nutritionist at her Muscatine, Iowa-based company, Boyer Livestock Consulting, launched in 2021, and has shared her expertise as an adjunct faculty member at the University of Arkansas and Mississippi State University since 2015.

Dr. Boyer is well known for her commitment to mentorship in her industry. As a woman in a mostly male field, she overcame a stream of obstacles during her career and struggled to find a strong female role model. Yet, even without a support system in place, she managed to achieve success and now seeks to serve aspiring, young professionals as the mentor she never had. In that vein, she has offered guidance to many college graduates who have entered the industry and are now thriving in their roles. Dr. Boyer keeps in touch with individuals she has mentored and is proud to counteract the isolation many women feel when entering her industry.

Determined early on to reach her goals and overcome obstacles in her way, Dr. Boyer attended Missouri State University, earning a Bachelor of Science in animal sciences in 2008. As a follow-up, she graduated in 2010 from the institution with a Master of Science in animal sciences. Devoted to higher education and professional development, she matriculated at the University of Arkansas and completed a Doctor of Philosophy in animal sciences in 2013. Alongside her primary roles, Dr. Boyer has served on the board of directors for the American Society of Animal Science (ASAS), a nonprofit professional organization that focuses on advancements in meat science, livestock, exotic animals, and companion animals.

Possessing the tenacity, perseverance, and determination she needed to forge her own path, Dr. Boyer is grateful for carving her special niche and realizing her aspirations. Continually active in her field, she became a member of the ASAS in 2008, joined the American Dairy Science Association in 2014, and the Equine Science Society in 2015. For her professional achievements, the ASAS honored Dr. Boyer with the Emerging Scholar Award in 2013.

Looking forward with optimism, Dr. Boyer plans to improve the operational efficacy and efficiency of her industry to bring about positive transformation in the sector. In her personal time, she enjoys studying the Bible, exercising, and supporting American military veterans.
