Animal Science Society Honors UW's Scott Lake

June 17, 2013

The American Society of Animal Science will present its Western Section Young Extension Award to Scott Lake, assistant professor in the University of Wyoming Department of Animal Science.

“Lake's research has huge implications for animal health and food production,” according to the award selection committee. He will be honored June 20, at the society’s Western Section meeting in Bozeman, Mont.

Lake conducts applied research in ruminant nutrition and management. He has secured more than $3 million as a principal investigator in support of his applied research program. Lake leads a large multistate research project with Zoetis (formerly Pfizer) on the value of artificial insemination and the use of DNA technology in the selection process.

This past year, Lake has served as a member of the Wyoming Sheep Quality Assurance Panel. He and colleagues have successfully obtained USDA funding to develop materials, including Extension materials for sheep producers.

A Nevada native, Lake joined the UW faculty after serving at Purdue University for three years. He received his B.S. and M.S. degrees at the University of Nevada, Reno, in 1999 and 2001, respectively, and received his Ph.D. in ruminant nutrition at UW in 2005.

Since arriving at UW, Lake has been active in Extension, research, teaching and professional service.
