UW-Madison Student Earns National DHIA Vet Scholarship
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 02/07/2019

Three college students have been named recipients of the fourth annual veterinary medicine college scholarship by the National Dairy Herd Information Association, including one from Wisconsin.

Elizabeth Endres, who is attending the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine, will be awarded $1,500 to be used for her college education. As an undergraduate dairy science student, she participated in the North American Intercollegiate Dairy Challenge and collegiate dairy judging. In veterinary school, she served as AABP co-president. Following graduation, Elizabeth plans to work in a private food animal practice and train Spanish-speaking employees. Endres fine-tuned her Spanish-speaking skills while interning on a 3,300-cow dairy in California.

The other scholarship recipients were from Illinois and Pennsylvania.

Applicants were judged on their overall interest as a veterinarian planning to work in dairy, involvement in dairy medicine and extra-curricular activities, and interest in using dairy software and dairy records to aid in dairy management and in improving animal health.
