TomaszewskiChampaign, IL – The American Dairy Science Association® (ADSA®) is pleased to announce Michael Tomaszewski as the 2016 recipient of the Purina Animal Nutrition Teaching Award in Dairy Production. The award will be presented on Thursday, July 21, 2016, during the awards ceremony at the ADSA Annual Meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The Purina Animal Nutrition Teaching Award in Dairy Production was created to recognize outstanding teaching of undergraduate students in dairy science. The winner must have demonstrated outstanding ability as a teacher of undergraduate students of dairy science in an accredited college or university, been an active teacher when nominated with not less than a total of 10 years of active teaching preceding, and been a member of the American Dairy Science Association for at least five successive years.

Michael Tomaszewski has had an effect on dairy instruction at multiple levels. At Texas A&M University he has become “Dr. T” to his students and “Mr. Dairy” to many. He has almost single‐handedly maintained dairy instruction at his home institution for more than 10 years. It is difficult to envision how anyone has accomplished and contributed more to dairy instruction over the last 5 to 10 years than Tomaszewski. Through his off‐season efforts, and day‐to‐day helmsman activities, Tomaszewski has
helped develop a premier program that has been accessible to practically any student in the United States at almost no cost. Tomaszewski has had local, regional, national, and international effects on dairy instruction, touching the education of so many.

It is with great pleasure that ADSA and Purina Animal Nutrition present Michael Tomaszewski with the 2016 Purina Animal Nutrition Teaching Award in Dairy Production.
