Lardy Elected to National Post

Greg Lardy, head of NDSU's Animal Sciences Department, will become president-elect of the American Society of Animal Science in July.

NDSU’s Animal Sciences Department head is elected president-elect of the American Society of Animal Science.

Greg Lardy, head of the Animal Sciences Department at North Dakota State University, has been elected to a one-year term as president-elect of the American Society of Animal Science.

His term begins in July. After completing that term, he will serve one year as the organization’s president and then one year as past president.

The American Society of Animal Science (ASAS) is the premiere organization for animal science researchers in the U.S. It has more than 5,000 members.

Lardy served the society as Midwest section director from 2008 to 2011 and program chair for the American Dairy Science Association (ADSA) and ASAS’s joint annual meeting in 2010.

He continues to serve on the ADSA/ASAS Way Forward Committee, which addresses specific issues related to the joint annual meeting.

In 2010, Lardy received the ASAS Extension Award. Before being named head of the Animal Sciences Department in 2009, Lardy was the NDSU Extension Service’s beef cattle specialist for 12 years. He also was promoted to professor in 2009.

“I look forward to playing an important leadership role in the American Society of Animal Science,” Lardy says. “Animal scientists play a critical role in addressing some of the challenges which lay before society, especially in providing food for a growing world population. The opportunity to lead the society at this time in history is very exciting, and I look forward to the challenge.”
