Agriculture Loan Recipients Announced

More than 600 veterinarians, veterinary technicians, practice staff and approximately 65 MU College of Veterinary Medicine students attended the Missouri Veterinary Medical Association’s 117th Annual Convention Jan. 23-25 at Tan-Tar-A Resort in Lake Ozark, Mo. The convention offered 60 continuing education lectures to participants.

Among the highlights of the convention was the announcement of six MU CVM students to be approved for the new Missouri Department of Agriculture Large Animal Veterinary Loan Program. The program offers financial incentives to veterinary students to provide rural veterinary care in underserved areas of the state after they complete their veterinary education. The CVM students who received the department’s first loans are: Bradley Metzner, VM4, Sedalia; Jason Wooderson, VM4, Bolivar; Tyler Rolofson, VM4, Tarkio; Jeffrey Engelbrecht, VM3, Henley; Adam Acklin, VM3, Graham; and Randy Miller, VM2, Graham.

CVM third-year student Mary Green became the first student to receive the MVMA’s annual President’s Award. The award is given to individuals who were instrumental to the president’s efforts to advance the veterinary profession for the betterment of animal health in the state. Dr. Steve Strubberg, MVMA Executive Board chairman presented the award to Green, who has served as a student representative on the board since she entered the CVM.

CVM Associate Dean of Student and Alumni Affairs and Director of Development Dr. Ron Cott also was honored during the event for 10 years of service as a delegate to the American Veterinary Medical Association.

Dr. Neil Olson, dean of the College, addressed the attendees during a breakfast the College hosted on Jan. 25. He discussed the College’s financial situation, the economic impact of veterinary medicine to the state, as well as challenges the College is facing.
