Dr. Eugene Janzen was honoured last week at the 2018 Canadian Beef Industry Conference in London, Ontario.
The professor and research at the University of Calgary College of Veterinary Medicine also spent many years at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan.
Dr. Janzen is one of the pioneers who worked to understand the health challenges in feedlot cattle. His research underpins many of today’s feedlot health protocols, including the role of vaccines, antimicrobials and biosecurity measures.
His most recent research interests include effective pain control in beef cattle and livestock welfare during transport.
