In collaboration with the American Association of Bovine Practitioners (AABP), AgriLabs is offering an award to two veterinarians – one beef and one dairy – to encourage and fund recent graduates in their post-graduate continuing education efforts. Named as a tribute to Bruce Wren, D.V.M., each award will provide $5,000 for professional-development training so these practitioners may better serve their producer-clients. Completed applications are due July 15, and the presentations will be made at the annual AABP Awards Banquet.
