Congratulations to Dr. Al Schultz on being selected for an Honorary Recognition Award by the University of Wisconsin-Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS).   Schultz is one of six individuals who will be recognized at the CALS Honorary Recognition Banquet on October 17.

Here is an excerpt from the CALS award announcement:

Allan Schultz is the vice president of VP Holdings Corporation and Vita Plus Corporation. Raised on a dairy farm in Wisconsin, Schultz found his passion and came to UW-Madison to receive a Bachelor of Science in 1972, a Master of Science in 1974 and a Ph.D. in 1991 in dairy science. Schultz’s history at Vita Plus began in 1976 when he became a dairy nutritionist. Since then, he has been a champion of dairy nutrition science and the success of dairy producers. He has also been a supporter of UW-Madison dairy science students and graduates. In fact, he helped create the UW Dairy Science/Vita Plus Masters Degree in Coursework Fellowship. This opportunity puts an undergraduate in position for advanced training, research experience and field experience. Upon graduation, these students are prepared to join numerous other CALS graduates who have been hired at Vita Plus if they choose to do so. Schultz is a dedicated and visionary leader, and a great supporter of the college.

Other CALS Honorees include Roger Blobaum, Pam Jahnke and John Ruedinger.  The CALS Distinguished Alumni Award will be presented to Henry Fribourg, and Professor Emeritus Warren “Buck” Gabelman will receive the CALS Distinguished Service Award.  Click here to learn more about these awards and all of the honorees.
