Nebraska Cattlemen Foundation honors industry, university professionals


Nebraska

Nebraska Cattlemen Foundation President Loretta Hamilton presented the Friend of the Foundation Award and Nebraska Beef Industry Endowment grants at the NCF lunch program held Dec. 6, 2012, during the Nebraska Cattlemen Annual Convention and Trade Show.

The Friend of the Foundation award is presented annually to a person and/or business that has shared endless amounts of time, talent and/or treasure with the Nebraska Cattlemen Foundation. The 2012 recipient announced was Bill Pullen with Bill's Volume Sales, Inc. who have been long time donors and supporters to NCF and its programs. Bill's Volume Sales, Inc. is a service oriented company started in 1963 and offers complete sales and service for major brands of feed mixers.

The Nebraska Beef Industry Endowment was established in December 2009 and provides a $5,000 grant to beef industry-related research and/or teaching positions at Nebraska post-secondary educational institutions. This award honors those professors or instructors that are providing cutting edge research and/or student instruction in a beef industry related area. For 2012, the Foundation awarded two grants--one to Rick Funston and one to Jerry Volesky.

Funston is an associate professor at the University of Nebraska as a beef reproductive physiology specialist. Funston is known throughout the country for his cutting-edge research with heifer development and fetal programming effects on subsequent reproductive performance in heifer calves. Volesky is a professor at the University of Nebraska as an Extension range and forage specialist. Volesky's primary area of research is on grazing management and systems. The majority of this work is conducted on Sandhills rangeland at the Gudmundsen Sandhills Laboratory near Whitman or the Barta Brother Ranch located south of Long Pine.
