Champaign, IL (June 1, 2023)—The American Dairy Science Association® (ADSA) is pleased to announce Winston Mason as the 2023 recipient of the ADSA Foundation Graduate Student Literature Review Award: Production Division (PhD). The award will be presented on Tuesday, June 27, 2023, during the awards ceremony at the ADSA Annual Meeting in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
The ADSA Foundation Graduate Student Literature Review Award: Production Division (PhD) was created to recognize graduate students who have composed in-depth and extensive literature reviews in their thesis or dissertation and allow for these papers to be published in the Journal of Dairy Science® as review papers, making them available as references for citations in original research papers. The winner must be a graduate student (or within 6 months of graduation) at the time of the article submission to the Journal of Dairy Science. The article must be no more than 30 double-spaced pages, including references and graphs, have no more than 75 references, and be focused on a topic in dairy science.
Born and raised in New Zealand, Winston Mason graduated as a veterinarian from Massey University in New Zealand in 2007 with a BVSc. After a decade as a dairy cattle veterinarian, he returned to his primary calling: on-farm research. After completing his MVS in epidemiology, he enrolled in a Massey University PhD program focusing on dairy cattle lameness in New Zealand. Mason’s graduate student literature review was a systematic review investigating the impact of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs as an adjunct treatment for claw horn lameness on lameness scores, algometer readings, and lying times.
It is with great pleasure that ADSA and the ADSA Foundation present Winston Mason with the 2023 ADSA Foundation Graduate Student Literature Review Award: Production Division (PhD).
