I’d like to congratulate Joe Domecq. The Michigan State University youth dairy specialist, coordinator of the MSU Institute of Agricultural Technology dairy management program and animal science academic specialist won the Hoard’s Dairyman Youth Development Award. Dr. Domecq received the dairy industry’s highest honor recognizing a dairy youth educator July 17 at the 2012 joint annual meeting of the American Dairy Science Association and the American Society of Animal Science in Phoenix.
The award recognizes a person with significant involvement in dairy-related youth activities highly regarded in the dairy industry for his or her role in personal development of dairy youth and for enhancing knowledge of and interest in the dairy youth industry. Having heard many students speak about their experience with Dr. Domecq, I know that description fits him extremely well. Kudos to Joe for his work with youth in animal science.
