On March 3, a group of University of Findlay students received multiple awards at the 2020 American Society of Animal Science (ASAS) Midwest Annual Meeting in Omaha, Nebraska.
Haley Arena, Emma Hicks, Samantha Bartley, Rachael Quandt and Thomas Burke decided to do more with their spring break by competing in an Academic Quadrathlon and presenting research inspired by their passion for animal science.
The team showcased their skills and knowledge acquired through the University of Findlay’s Animal Science Program and placed third overall in the Quadrathlon. Additionally, Bartley placed second in the Undergraduate Student Oral Competition with her presentation on the effects of audio exposure to goat kids.
Brian Whitaker, Ph.D., faculty co-advisor for the team, states that this event, “is an opportunity to build strong team-working skills and practice everything the students have learned in their academic careers.” Whitaker firmly believes that, “it is not about the competition; it is about the experiences, exposure and networking each of the students get.”
