AgriLabs' Bruce Wren Continuing Education Beef and Dairy Awards

AgriLabs is granting these awards in honor of Dr. Bruce Wren in recognition of his commitment to practical and formal continuing education.

The AgriLabs' Bruce Wren Continuing Education Award, managed by the American Association of Bovine Practitioners, honors veterinarians working with beef cattle or dairies who demonstrate a desire to expand their skills and knowledge in veterinary medicine. The intent of this award is to encourage veterinarians to identify and participate in professional-development opportunities that enable them to better serve both their producer-clients and the industry.

At the time of the application deadline, at least one year and no more than 10 years must have passed since the applicant earned his/her doctorate in veterinary medicine or veterinariae medicinae doctoris. The applicant must be actively involved in a veterinary practice. An applicant does not need to be a member of the American Association of Bovine Practitioners.

The $5,000 grant is to be used to fund the professional-development experience presented in the application form. Professional-development opportunities can include, but are not limited to, seminars, technical or business short courses, advanced training and mentoring/ride-along time with an exemplary veterinary practitioner. The application should focus on a professional-development opportunity in one of these two categories:

  1. Individual-medicine category
    The purpose is to enable the applicant to further his/her knowledge and skills regarding basic animal medicine. This includes, but is not limited to, diagnosis, treatment, surgery, case management, pain management and patient welfare.
  2. Production-medicine category
    The purpose is to enable the applicant to further his/her knowledge and skills with developing and implementing herd protocols to enhance health and profitability. This includes, but is not limited to, records analysis, disease prevention, production enhancement, benchmarking, biosecurity and food safety.

The winner will be recognized at the American Association of Bovine Practitioners annual meeting.

A completed application form (Beef or Dairy) and three letters of support must be submitted before July 15th to be considered.

Winners will be required to submit four to six color photos, along with captions, that can be used in award presentations and for publicity. Ideally they will provide background about your current and/or desired future involvement in beef veterinary practice. These must be provided to the AABP office within a week of notification of selection.
