Claudia Ingham, PhD has been a faculty member in the Department of Animal and Rangeland Sciences since 2009. She teaches numerous courses in both the Animal Sciences and Rangeland Sciences curricula in which she incorporates a systems approach to managing livestock, particularly small ruminants, and the science and management of rangelands. She has developed several new courses including ANS 550- Organic Livestock Production Systems, RNG 470- Pastoral Systems of the World and RNG 491- Rangeland Management Planning which is a Writing Intensive Curriculum (WIC) offering. She collaborates with colleagues to revise both ANS and RNG courses and is Assessment Lead for facilitating the reporting and review of undergraduate achievement.
Dr. Ingham is active in the Society for Range Management and has served on the board of the Pacific Northwest Section and as Chair of the SRM Targeted Grazing Committee.. She lead the effort to establish the newest SRM certification program for Targeted Graziers, initiated in 2020.
Her research on targeted grazing of invasive plant species including Himalaya blackberry and English ivy with goats is published in Invasive Plant Science and Management and she consults with land managers on grazing management.
Dr. Ingham advises undergraduates and works with colleagues in Corvallis and OSU at EOU in La Grande, Oregon to serve diverse learners across the state of Oregon and via Ecampus.
