Champaign, IL (May 9, 2022)—The American Dairy Science Association® (ADSA®) is pleased to announce Christopher K. Reynolds as the 2022 recipient of the American Feed Industry Association Award. The award will be presented on Tuesday, June 21, 2022, during the awards ceremony at the ADSA Annual Meeting in Kansas City, Missouri.

The American Feed Industry Association Award was created to stimulate research in dairy cattle nutrition. The award recognizes an individual who has made a worthy contribution to research of dairy cattle nutrition within the 10 years immediately prior to the year of the award. The winner must have published original research work; conducted research at a public institution, hospital, or similar institution; and been a member of ADSA for at least five successive years.

Chris Reynolds is professor of animal and dairy science and director of the Centre for Dairy Research at the University of Reading. Following postgraduate study at the University of Tennessee, he worked in the USDA-Agricultural Research Service Ruminant Nutrition Laboratory in Beltsville, Maryland, until moving to the University of Reading in 1993. He also spent four years as an associate professor at The Ohio State University. His research has primarily concerned the nutritional physiology of ruminants in relation to energy and protein metabolism. Recent research has focused on strategies to reduce methane and reactive nitrogen emissions associated with milk and meat production, and the use of multispecies swards to improve the sustainability and resilience of ruminant production systems.

It is with great pleasure that ADSA and the American Feed Industry Association Inc. present Christopher K. Reynolds with the 2022 American Feed Industry Association Award.
