Champaign, IL (June 1, 2023)—The American Dairy Science Association® (ADSA®) is pleased to announce Lance Baumgard as the 2023 recipient of the American Feed Industry Association Award. The award will be presented on Tuesday, June 27, 2023, during the awards ceremony at the ADSA Annual Meeting in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

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.

Lance Baumgard is a distinguished professor and the Norman L. Jacobson Professor of Nutritional Physiology in the Department of Animal Science at Iowa State University. Baumgard researches milk fat synthesis, metabolism, transition and heat-stressed cow energetics, and immunometabolism. He and his colleagues have recently focused their research efforts on the energetic and mineral requirements of an activated immune system. In particular, Baumgard and his group describe how immune activation alters nutrient trafficking and, ultimately, reduces farm animal productivity.

It is with great pleasure that ADSA and the American Feed Industry Association Inc. present Lance Baumgard with the 2023 American Feed Industry Association Award.
