K-State animal science professor honored with ASAS Fellow Award
Evan Titgemeyer was awarded the American Society of Animal Science Fellow Award: Research Category for his distinguished service to the animal science industry and ASAS.
MANHATTAN, Kan. – Evan Titgemeyer, Kansas State University Department of Animal Sciences and Industry graduate program director and research coordinator, was named a recipient of the 2016 American Society of Animal Science Fellow Award: Research Category by the ASAS during its annual meeting July 20 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
“I'm very honored to receive the award, and I think it reflects the strong program at K-State and the excellent faculty, technicians and graduate students that I've been able to collaborate with over the years,” Titgemeyer said.
He joined the K-State faculty in 1992. His research program has yielded 145 journal articles and brought in more than $2 million in research support. He served as a division editor for the “Journal of Animal Science” from 2006-2009 and currently serves as a section editor. He received the American Feed Industry Association Award in Ruminant Nutrition Research in 2007.
Titgemeyer’s research program studies amino acid utilization by growing cattle and has demonstrated that the efficiencies of amino acid use for growth differ among the amino acids, and is often much less than predicted by current models. Eleven of his graduate students have been placed as university faculty.
The ASAS Fellow Award: Research Category recognizes persons who have rendered distinguished service to the animal industry and/or to the ASAS, maintained continuous membership in the society for a minimum of 25 years, and who are in good standing in the society.
The ASAS is a professional organization that serves more than 6,000 students, animal scientists and livestock producers around the world.
