The Zinpro Award for Excellence in Dairy Science was created to recognize outstanding research in dairy production or manufacturing contributing to improvement or care of dairy cattle and development and improvement of processes, products, equipment, methods, handling, and sanitation. The winner must have made meritorious scientific contributions or discoveries pertaining to dairy production, manufacturing, and technology. These contributions may be published research data, plans, processes, devices, or inventions significant and beneficial to the dairy industry through either theory or practical application and may have been made while the winner was employed in public and/or private institutions and/or industry. The winner must also have published the research during the 10 calendar years immediately prior to the year of the award and must be and have been a member of ADSA for at least 5 successive years.

Daniel Weary is the recipient of the Zinpro Award for Excellence in Dairy Science. Weary is a professor at the University of British Columbia. His research focuses on methods of assessing and relieving pain and distress in cattle, developing alternative methods of housing and managing cattle (including group housing, milk feeding, and weaning for calves), methods for early detection and prevention of disease in animals (including lameness), and using social science methods to better understand the motivations and constraints of farmers, policy makers, and the public with regard to the care of dairy cattle.

It is with great pleasure that ADSA and Zinpro Animal Health present Daniel Weary with the 2020 Zinpro Award for Excellence in Dairy Science.
