HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – Michael Looper, head of the Department of Animal Science, received the 2019 Arkansas Cattlemen's Association Producer Education Award while attending the annual association's convention and trade show from Aug. 29-31 in Hot Springs. 

"It was a huge surprise to receive this award," said Looper.  "I accepted it on behalf of the entire department, as it is a testament to the strong relationships we have with stakeholders—specifically the cattlemen and women of Arkansas."

 The Producer Education Award is presented during a banquet on the final night of the event and recognizes the awardee's commitment to the education of producers in Arkansas and for their support of the Arkansas Cattlemen's Association.
