DURHAM, N.H. – Charles Schwab, professor of animal and nutritional
sciences at the University of New Hampshire, received the 2005 American
Feed Industry Association Award at the joint annual meeting of the
American Dairy Science Association and the American Society of Animal
Science in Cincinnati, Ohio. The only recipient of this award nationwide,
Schwab was recognized for his important contributions to the field
of dairy nutrition.
Schwab “has made major research contributions to protein and
amino acid nutrition of dairy cattle and has worked tirelessly and
unselfishly to transfer this knowledge to the industry,” said
the award citation. His research culminated with the lead role in
development of the National Research Council model for protein and
amino acid nutrition of dairy cattle, published in 2001. Most recently,
he established the Ruminant Feed Analysis Consortium to develop
a national database of feed composition.
The award citation also recognized Schwab’s contributions
to UNH via teaching and service as well as his service to the feed
industry and the American Dairy Science Association.
