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.
