St. Joseph, MO - AgriLabs CEO, Steve Schram, today announced that AgriLabs will present two $5000 named awards in honor of Dr. Bruce Wren.

Mr. Schram said that, "AgriLabs has relied upon Dr. Wren's professional expertise as a member of our Technical Services team for many years. But now it is time to invite the broader veterinary community to share in the recognition of his unwavering, deep commitment and dedication to the profession with the establishment of these scholarships in his honor."

Recipients of AgriLabs Dr. Bruce Wren Continuing Education Scholarships will benefit from Bruce's commitment to both practical and formal continuing in the training of first rate veterinarians.

"The gap between the number of veterinarians available to serve dairy and beef producers continues to increase," remarked Mr. Schram. "These grants will provide dedicated veterinarians with significant resources for self-directed professional development and encourage them to remain in large animal medicine."

Candidates will design their own award through an application process and judging criteria based on:

• A professional development plan, describing the skills/knowledge candidates would like to improve upon to become a more valuable resource for their producer/clients and how they would use the grant for this improvement.

• Letters of reference from three individuals (including at least one producer and one veterinarian) who have first-hand knowledge of the applicants' practice experience and educational interest.

The selection process and the administration of each of these two $5000 grants - one to a beef practitioner, the other to a dairy practitioner-- will be headed by Dr. Gatz Riddell, AABP, and Dr. David Selner, National Dairy Shrine

Dr. Wren will present the Awards to the inaugural recipients at the joint 43rd Annual Conference of the American Association of Bovine Practitioners and the 2010 Academy of Veterinary Consultants Summer Meeting
