In November 2012, Grant Shackell from AgResearch Invermay attended the 15th Congress of the Asian-Australasian Association of Animal Production Societies (AAAP), supported by, and representing, the New Zealand Society of Animal Production.
Advocacy for science as the essential foundation of agriculture has been a constant theme in the teaching, research and administrative career of Yorkshire-born Professor Andrew Sykes, who retired in May 2012 as Professor of Animal Science and Head of the Department of Agricultural Sciences at Lincoln University, after 34 years on the staff, including a period as Pro ViceChancellor.
The NZSAP Animal Science Award supported my attendance at the Joint Annual Meeting (JAM 2012) of the American Society of Animal Science, American Dairy Science Association, Canadian Society of Animal Science, Western Section of the American Society of Animal Science and Asociacion Mexicana de Produccion Animal from the 15-19 July 2012 in Phoenix, Arizona. During the conference I reflected on differences and similarities between animal science in NZ and the US.
