CVM Alumnus Bud Hertzog
Receives Dual Honors

Dr. Robert “Bud” Hertzog received two honors at the recent American Royal/UPHA Saddlebred Horse Show in Kansas City’s Kemper Arena. His first honor was being named “Horse Person of the Year” by the American Royal’s Saddlebred Horse Committee. During this presentation it was also announced that a gift of $500,000 honoring him will be given to the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine.

The planned gift will be used to create the “Dr. Robert E. Hertzog Fund for Excellence in the Office of Student Affairs, College of Veterinary Medicine.” This will be an endowment to be utilized at the discretion of the dean in consultation with the associate dean for Student and Alumni Affairs to address veterinary student needs and events. The donor of the gift wishes to remain anonymous. Dr. Hertzog is a 1956 graduate of the MU CVM and has remained an active supporter of the University and the American Royal.

“Dr. Hertzog is so closely identified with the American Royal that it is truly unique among the other shows,” American Royal Chairman Brant Laue said. “He is recognized by the veterinary medical associations. He’s just one of these admired personalities that has accomplished a great deal in life, and the American Royal has been fortunate enough to be associated with him."
