Program Manager

Priya Tuvell has her Master’s of Agriculture in Integrated Resource Management from Colorado State University, and an undergraduate degree in Animal Science with a Livestock/Dairy emphasis and Ruminant Nutrition Science minor from UC Davis. Priya’s professional interests include regenerative and multi-species grazing management, ruminant nutrigenomics, and pasture-based ruminant nutrition.

Prior to joining the CRA Team, Priya has worked on various goat and cattle dairy farms, including managing an established organic dairy in the Central Valley, providing nutritional consulting to small niche creameries, and in the milking parlor of local, pasture-based dairies. Priya is also involved in the local livestock community through her membership of Butte County Cattlewoman’s Association.

In her free time, Priya operates her own pasture-based diversified farm in North Chico with her husband, Michael. Together, they currently raise heritage breed chickens for eggs and Nigerian Dwarf Goats for show and milk production, with plans on expanding the farm in the future. Priya also enjoys knitting with different types of wool, wine tasting, a good science-fiction novel, and hanging out with her pets: 4 dogs, a cat, a parrot, and a gecko
