Champaign, IL (May 19, 2021)—The American Dairy Science Association (ADSA®) is pleased to announce Glen Broderick as the 2021 recipient of the ADSA Distinguished Service Award. Broderick will be recognized during the virtual ADSA Annual Meeting.

The ADSA Distinguished Service Award was created to recognize unusually outstanding and consistent contributions to the welfare of the dairy industry, either directly or indirectly. The award is based on a broad, even nonscientific, contribution. Thus, outstanding achievements by those in industry, public administration, or academic administration shall qualify. The contribution may be national or international. The ADSA Distinguished Service Award is not for ADSA accomplishments. The winner must have fulfilled as of January 1 of the year of the award the contributions to the welfare of the dairy industry for which they are to be recognized, must be living when nominated, and need not be a member of ADSA.

Glen Broderick is the 2021 winner of the ADSA Distinguished Service Award. He is a retired USDA researcher and emeritus professor of animal and dairy sciences at the University of Wisconsin. He has a PhD in biochemistry and dairy science from the University of Wisconsin–Madison and served as assistant and associate professor of animal science at Texas A&M. Broderick’s research has focused on improving nitrogen efficiency in lactating cows. In addition to teaching and mentoring, he served on several editorial boards and continues to review papers and make invited presentations at national and international meetings. He received the AFIA Nutrition Research Award and an honorary doctorate from the Swedish Agricultural University; in addition, he is an ADSA Fellow and a member of JDS Club 100. Web of Science indicates that Broderick’s 150 peer-reviewed articles have been cited 8,250 times.

It is with great pleasure that ADSA presents Glen Broderick with the 2021 ADSA Distinguished Service Award.
