The award is sponsored by the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), in partnership with PSA, as part of its ongoing awards program, which dates back to 1948. Phillip Smith of Tyson presented the award to Rodehutscord on behalf of the AFIA.
“Markus has made great strides in poultry nutrition research,” said Preston Buff, director of regulatory affairs at the AFIA. “AFIA is proud to present him with this award.”
Rodehutscord’s research focuses on minimizing the excretion of nitrogen and phosphorous and improving the efficiency of amino acid and phosphorous utilization by poultry. He coordinated the 2.1 Mio Euro GrainUp project.
Rodehutscord has published more than 86 peer-reviewed articles on poultry nutrition, served as the Metabolism and Nutrition section editor for Poultry Science and serves on multiple committees and working groups dealing with poultry science.
Rodehutscord received his degrees from the University of Bonn, Germany.
