Canadian swine vet wins U.S. award


Dr, Egan Brockhoff of Red Deer,Alta., has won the 2021 Allen D. Leman Science in Practice Award.


Brockhoff is president and managing partner of Prairie Swine Health Services.

“I was very humbled to get the call,” Brockhoff says. “What a great feeling to be recognized by such a world-renowned group. 

“When you pour yourself into your profession, clients, team and industry every day, year after year, sometimes you forget to raise your head and appreciate the value and positive contributions you are making out there,” he said. 

For more than 20 years this award has honored veterinarians who are accomplished leaders of our swine industry, said Prof. Montse Torremorell of the Department of Veterinary Population Medicine at the University of Minnesota.
