Intervet/Schering-Plough awards top bovine veterinary students

Two Ohio State bovine veterinary students were among the eight award winners from across the United States who received a special student recognition award sponsored by Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health. Brian Hartschuh and Elizabeth Homerosky each received $1,500 awards and an all-expenses-paid trip to the American Association of Bovine Practitioners (AABP) annual conference in Albuquerque in August .

"Bovine veterinarians are a vital and irreplaceable professional resource in the animal-health and food industries," said Dr. Norm Stewart, livestock technical services manager for Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health. "Today's veterinary students will build upon an established foundation to apply their educations, expertise and unique skill sets to benefit animal health."

Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health has sponsored the Bovine Veterinary Student Recognition Awards since 2004 and awarded more than $49,000 to 41 students during that time.

The program recognizes students who exemplify dedication and commitment to dairy and/or beef veterinary medicine. Third- and fourth-year veterinary students are eligible to receive the award. Selection is based on work experience, academic achievements, primary interests in veterinary medicine and career goals.
