K-State Animal Science Academic Quadrathlon team named reserve champions

A team of Kansas State University students were named the 2013 reserve champions of the National Animal Science Academic Quadrathlon July 8 to 9 in conjunction with the Joint American Society of Animal Science/American Dairy Science Association meetings in Indianapolis, Ind.

Members of the K-State team, their major and hometowns, included: Chase Miller, junior in animal sciences and industry, Harrisonburg, Va.; Kiah Gourley, junior in animal sciences and industry, Philomath, Ore.; Analena Simmons, May 2013 graduate of feed science and management and minor in animal sciences and industry, Barnard, Kan.; and Angela Vesco, May 2013 graduate of animal sciences and industry, Winnemucca, Nev. Karol Fike, faculty member in animal science, serves as the team advisor.

The competition includes four events: laboratory practicum, quiz bowl, oral presentation and written exam. The material in the events covers animal science and industry information, with the oral presentation focusing on contemporary issue topics in animal agriculture. The team competed against students from Montana State University, Oklahoma State University and Penn State University. K-State won the laboratory practicum and written exam and placed second in the oral presentation and fourth in the quiz bowl.

K-State’s team is sponsored by Fourth and Pomeroy Associates, Inc. of Clay Center, Kan. Joe Ebert, Fourth and Pomeroy’s vice president and general manager is a 1971 K-State graduate in animal sciences and industry, and Joe Brown, company president is a 1959 graduate in feed science and management.

Students earned the right to compete at the national event after receiving Midwestern Region Academic Quadrathlon champion honors this past March competing against 15 other university teams.
