The University of Wisconsin-Madison's College of Agricultural and Life Sciences has honored two long-time UW-Extension specialists at its spring banquet.

Pamela Ruegg received the CALS Excellence in International Activities Award that recognizes an individual engaged in international research, instruction, outreach, program development or service; and Bernadette O'Rourke was given the Academic Staff Award for Excellence in Leadership.

Ruegg is a Milk Quality and Dairy Animal Health Specialist at UW-Madison. For the past 18 years, she has presented at conferences, short courses, research collaborations and on-farm consulting activities in places such as Brazil, Ireland, Italy and Kosovo.

O'Rourke was instrumental in creating the Wisconsin Youth Livestock Program, which has grown in terms of value and scale. She leads activities connected to the education and personal development of young people engaged in the animal sector of the state. In this role, Bernie manages youth, leaders and parents in the beef, sheep, swine and meat goat projects across Wisconsin's 72 counties.
