Champaign, IL (May 9, 2022)—The American Dairy Science Association (ADSA®) is pleased to announce David Barbano as the 2022 recipient of the ADSA Distinguished Service Award. The award will be presented on Sunday, June 20, 2022, during the opening session at the ADSA Annual Meeting in Kansas City, Missouri.

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.

David Mark Barbano grew up in Cazenovia, New York, and received his BS (biology and food science) and MS and PhD degrees (food science) at Cornell University. Barbano is professor of food science and director of the Northeast Dairy Foods Research Center and has made outstanding contributions to the advancement of food science and the dairy industry in the areas of milk chemistry; analytical methods for milk and dairy products; dairy herd management milk testing for de novo, mixed, and preformed fatty acids; membrane filtration of milk and whey; and dairy product manufacturing technology over four decades in his research, extension, and teaching programs. Barbano is a past president of the American Dairy Science Association, past chair of the American Dairy Science Association Foundation, and Fellow of AOAC International and the American Dairy Science Association.

It is with great pleasure that ADSA presents David Barbano with the 2022 ADSA Distinguished Service Award.
