George E. Shook International/Study Abroad Scholarship

A passionate mentor, Dr. Shook provided guidance to other faculty and staff, and advised graduate and undergraduate students. He served as the chair of the Department of Dairy Science for six years. Dr. Shook revolutionized the field of dairy genetics with his research on somatic cell testing which led to a national genetic evaluation system for dairy herds, based on a standardized somatic cell score. Established with gifts from friends and colleagues, the George E.
