Fund Detail

Fund Purpose:

The goal of the Schingoethe symposium is to focus on a specific topic of Dairy Cattle Nutrition each year that can range from calf nutrition through lactating dairy cows. The symposium can/will be a combination of invited presentations and selected abstracts that mesh with the symposium focus that particular year. 

Biographical Sketch:

David Schingoethe obtained his B.S. in Animal Science in 1964 and his M.S. in 1965, working under Dr. Bruce Larson at the University of Illinois. Dr. Schingoethe received his Ph.D. in 1968 from Michigan State University working with Dr. Bill Thomas. In 1969, Dr. Schingoethe joined South Dakota State University as Assistant Professor of Dairy Science. He was promoted to Associate Professor in 1973 and to Full Professor in 1980. Schingoethe was advisor to 9 Ph.D.’s, 37 Master’s and hundreds of undergraduate students in Dairy Science during his 42 years of Research and Teaching at South Dakota State University.

On March 20, 2012, the American Dairy Science Association (ADSA) and the American Society of Animal Science (ASAS) recognized Dairy Scientist Dr. David J. Schingoethe with a symposium in his honor on amino acid nutrition of lactating dairy cows. Schingoethe, Retired Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Dairy Science at South Dakota State University, devoted his career to research, teaching, and mentoring of graduate and undergraduate students in Dairy Cattle Nutrition and Physiology.
