K-State's Weaber awarded for cow-calf genetics work


A Kansas State University associate professor in the Animal Sciences and Industry Department received recognition for his early career work.

Robert Weaber, K-State Research and Extension beef breeding and cow-calf specialist, received the 2013 American Dairy Science Association/American Society of Animal Science Midwest Section Outstanding Young Extension Specialist Award.

Weaber’s work focuses on cow-calf production and shows producers how to use certain genetic selection tools. By selecting animals with certain genetic traits, cattle producers can improve meat production and animal health. Weaber also encourages cattle producers to collect data and track genetic progress in their herds.

The award is presented to honor leaders in the area of Extension. The 2013 award was sponsored by Land O’Lakes Purina Feed LLC.
