Dr. Mueller was born and raised on a diversified livestock and grain farm in SE Nebraska.  He is the youngest of four brothers; each involved in different aspects of agriculture.  Dr. Mueller received his B.S. degree in Animal Sciences from Oklahoma State University, and a M.S. and Ph.D. degree in Animal Sciences from South Dakota State University.  His graduate degrees focused on Ruminant Nutrition and Beef Cattle Management / Feedlot systems.  Dr. Mueller’s academic career included both research and teaching, but now primarily focuses on teaching.  He developed and taught courses in a variety of subject matters focusing on animal agriculture systems and leadership development.  Dr. Mueller spent 17 years with Oregon State University, and is currently a visiting Assistant Professor with EOU focusing on the newly developed Agriculture Entrepreneurship program. 

In his spare time Dr. Mueller enjoys working in his shop, watching college football, catching a local baseball game, and visiting new and interesting agriculture operations anywhere he can.  His canine companion ‘Bella’ can be found most times next to his side or hanging out the passenger window of his truck! “The excitement and support of the EOU community, and especially the COB faculty, for the new Agriculture Entrepreneurship program has been overwhelming!  Having the opportunity to help develop a unique academic program…a career path…for our bright and innovative students entering the world of agriculture was one of the main reasons I wanted to be part of the future of EOU and COB.”
