The annual awards honor Wren, a long-time technical services veterinarian for the company, in recognition of his lifelong commitment to practical and formal continuing education for veterinarians.

The grants seek to encourage veterinarians working with beef or dairy cattle who have expressed a desire to expand their skills and knowledge, to further develop within their field of expertise in veterinary practice.

Each $5,000 grant will be used by the winners – who have earned their veterinary degree within the past 10 years – to make possible professional continuing education proposed by the applicant.
The recipients are Dr. Rebecca Funk, Beef Continuing Education Award winner, and Dr. Amanda Willis, Dairy Continuing Education Award. Proposals could focus on:

Individual Animal Medicine – to enable practitioners to further his/her knowledge and skills in basic animal medicine, including diagnosis, treatment, surgery, case management, pain management or patient welfare.

Production Medicine – for veterinarians seeking to develop or implement herd protocols that enhance health and profitability, including records analysis, disease prevention, production enhancement, benchmarking, bio-security, or food safety.  end mark
