Dr. Martin Stob
West Lafayette, IN
Dr. Martin Stob has dedicated his life to the education of current and past livestock breeders in the state of Indiana. This livestock industry professional is hard working, trustworthy, and a true leader.
For approximately 40 years, he taught the course "Animal Reproductive Physiology" at Purdue University and influenced the lives of approximately 4,000 students. When a significant sample of the students was polled, 93% indicated that they would like to take another course with Dr. Stob and 96% would recommend the course to their friends. A large number of those students have been and are now successful and influential livestock breeders.
Dr. Stob was named "Outstanding Teacher in the School of Agriculture" in 1964, 1966, 1969, and 1970 and "Outstanding Counselor in the School of Agriculture" in 1977. Selection limitations of these awards prevented additional recognition. Martin was one of 24 Purdue Teaching Faculty named to the "Iron Key" over a 60-year period. He also served students as an advisor for the Rodeo Club, Student Senate, Block and Bridle and the Farmhouse Fraternity.
Dr. Stob participated in research that measured the effects of both natural and administered hormones on carcass quality, growth, embryonic mortality and breeding efficiency of sheep, cattle, and swine.
Congratulations and thank you to Dr. Martin Stob for your influence on the knowledge, integrity and skill of numerous Indiana livestock breeders.
