Fund Detail


Fund Purpose:

The purpose of this fund, created in March 2018 and fully funded in October of 2019, is to provide funding for a Platform Speaker at the Midwest Meetings on early pig health and/or nutrition. The invited speaker will give a 45 minute talk anchoring a session of 12 minute talks. 


Charles Maxwell received his BS and MS from University of Georgia and his PhD degree from University of Wisconsin. He started his career in a research and teaching position as a swine specialist at Oklahoma State University and served in that capacity for 28 years. Since 1996, he has held the position of professor of swine nutrition and management at the University of Arkansas. Maxwell has made major contributions to the swine industry. His research has emphasized nutrition of the neonatal and early-weaned pigs and has resulted in a better understanding of the effect of management systems on performance of young pigs. He has published 79 refereed journal articles, 188 abstracts and 153 miscellaneous publications.  

In October 2019, the fundraising Committee - Dr. Ellen Davis, Dr. Brenda De Rodas, Dr. Dari Brown and Dr. Casey Bradley, met the $25,000.00 goal to fully fund the Charles Maxwell Appreciation Club.
