NMPF Congratulates 2013 Scholarship Winners

At its June meeting, the NMPF Scholarship Committee selected three graduate students to receive scholarships as part of the 2013 NMPF National Dairy Leadership Scholarship Program. These students are currently conducting research in areas that will benefit dairy cooperatives and producers.

The 2013 Hintz Memorial Scholarship, given to the top scholarship candidate, was awarded to Kristen Glosson, a M.S. candidate in Animal Science & Nutrition at North Carolina State University. Her research project examines supplementing a pasteurized milk balancer product to two feeding levels of pasteurized whole milk on the health and growth of dairy calves.

A scholarship was also awarded to Clayton Stoffel, M.S. candidate in Dairy Cattle Nutrition at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, for his research on the effects of different fatty acid profiles on milk fat depression in dairy cattle fed diets below 4% fat. Yun Yu, M.S. candidate in Food Science at the Pennsylvania State University, was awarded a scholarship for her research on a novel clean-in-place approach of electrolyzed water for dairy processing equipment.

The scholarship committee was impressed with the quality of applications and thanked all of the students who applied for the 2013 program. All eligible students are encouraged to apply again next year.
