Abilene, Kan., veterinarian recognized by alma mater

Lisa Tokach, D.V.M, of Abilene, Kan., will receive the Science in Practice award for her work to keep science relevant to industry. Tokach, a 1990 graduate of the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine, will receive the award during the Allen D. Leman Swine Conference on Sept. 16, at the St. Paul RiverCentre.

After graduation, Tokach joined Steve Henry, D.V.M., in mixed animal practice at the Abilene Animal Hospital in Abilene. Later, Tokach worked on a team of veterinarians and producers that addressed swine disease and pestilence while attempting to keep their clients’ operations profitable and the pigs well fed.

“Abilene Animal Hospital’s focus is always on addressing clients’ needs,” Tokach said. “Whether through industry-funded research trials designed to test a new theory or small field trials designed at the producer’s kitchen table to answer their burning question.”

In 2000 Tokach completed her ABVP board certification in Swine Health Management Practice.

Tokach cites American Association of Swine Veterinarians as a driving force behind her career and has served on various committees including American Veterinary Medical Association, the AASV board of directors and eventually as AASV president in 2002. In 2008 Tokach said she was “extremely honored” to receive AASV’s Swine Practitioner of the Year award.

The University of Minnesota, Allen D. Leman Swine Conference is an annual educational event for the global swine industry. It is internationally acclaimed for bringing science-driven solutions to the complex challenges facing the industry. Each year hundreds of participants from over 20 countries attend the Leman Swine Conference held in St. Paul, Minn.
