News and Events
In Memory of Dr. Bonnard Moseley

The College of Veterinary Medicine family was saddened to learn of the passing this weekend of Dr. Bonnard Moseley, former Director of the CVM’s Veterinary Continuing Education/Extension unit. Dr. Moseley was an alumnus of the College, graduating in 1962. Originally from south Missouri, he lived in Columbia most of his professional life. He continued to be a faithful friend and supporter of the College following his retirement from MU approximately 15 years ago.

Highlights of Dr. Moseley’s tenure with the College include memories of his extension and outreach efforts throughout Missouri, his work with former Dean Bob Kahrs in establishing and parading the original mule team as College mascots, and his warm and good-humored nature. One of Dr. Moseley’s legacies was his ability to predict weather based on animal behaviors and signs observed in nature. He spoke widely on this topic throughout the State where audiences found his presentations on this subject both informative and entertaining. He was an avid runner and active participant in the Show Me State Senior Games. Dr. Moseley retired from the College of Veterinary Medicine in August 1989.

Dr. Moseley and his wife Rusty, who survives, were extremely proud of their two sons Joe and John. Joe was a local prosecutor and State Senator for a number of years and is presently a corporate attorney for Shelter Insurance in Columbia. John was an all-american football player for MIZZOU and also currently lives in Columbia. John’s wife Jill is an MU DVM graduate of the class of 1998.

Memorials may be sent to Broadway Christian Church/Youth Programs, 2601 West Broadway, Columbia, MO, 65203.
