Schwartz Named 2017 Master of the Pork Industry

May 12, 2017

Dr. Kent Schwartz, clinical professor in veterinary diagnostic and production animal medicine and the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory, has been named a 2017 Master of the Pork Industry by the National Hog Farmer magazine.

Schwartz was among the handpicked group of pork industry leaders “who have left deep roots in the swine business.” He was selected because of his “commitment to each of the up to 3,000 cases that cross his desk in the VDL. To Schwartz, these cases aren’t just numbers, there are real producers with real herds and real concerns.”

Only three to four individuals who are nominated by their peers are selected each year for the award.
