William W. Thatcher, ASAS Fellow Award

Sponsored by American Society of Animal Science Foundation

William W. Thatcher, of the Department of Animal Sciences, University of Florida, has made major contributions to animal science and the cattle industry through his work to develop novel approaches for regulating reproductive function and for his efforts in translating this research into practical, on-farm methods for improving reproductive performance. He has produced breakthrough discoveries in methods for reproductive management of cattle. His greatest accomplishment has been development and application of timed artificial insemination technologies that are now being adopted by cattle producers throughout the world. Thatcher’s current research activities are leading to nutraceutical approaches to further improve fertility of cattle.
