Wisconsin Ag Connection - 10/27/2020

Animal Science Assistant Professor Kurt Vogel has been chosen as the 2020 recipient of the Distinguished Teacher Award at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.

A native of southwestern Wisconsin, Vogel joined the faculty at UWRF in 2011 after earning his Ph.D. from Colorado State University. In 2014, he established the Animal Welfare Lab at UWRF with support from Oscar Mayer. He was also named one of National Provisioner magazine's top 25 Future Icons expected to change the industry over the next decade.

Vogel teaches in the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences, instructing courses in animal welfare and animal physiology. Student nominators wrote repeatedly of his approachable nature and dedication to students.

"I'm very happy to see Kurt recognized as the 2020 UWRF Distinguished Teacher," said CAFES Dean Dale Gallenberg. "He has a deep interest and passion for his subject areas along with a desire for collaboration with others. Both in and out of the classroom he is committed to working with students and providing them with the best educational experiences possible."

The award is the school's most prestigious honor bestowed to a faculty member.
