Dr. Alan McCauley of Mount Cory, Ohio, was honored with the Image Award at the All-American Dairy Show exhibitor banquet at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center in Harrisburg.
The Image Award is presented annually to an individual who has enhanced the image of the All-American Dairy Show with significant contributions to its reputation, prestige and welfare.
"Alan has steered the All-American Dairy Show for five years with grit and determination," says Russell Redding, Pennsylvania's agriculture secretary. "His commitment to setting the show on a path to continued success makes him an obvious choice for the Image Award, and we congratulate and thank him for his service to not only the show, but to the dairy industry as a whole."
McCauley will step down after five years as chairman of the Pennsylvania Allied and Industries Association, the volunteer board of directors that governs the All-American Dairy Show.
"It’s so rewarding to see the show succeed through a variety of challenges and secure the continued support of the industry," McCauley says. "I’m glad to see the show click along, and I know I’m just a small part of a great team effort."
He recognized the many volunteers who help keep the show running and praised last year’s Image Award winner Barbara Ziemba for her fundraising efforts and strong relationships with sponsors and exhibitors for much of the show’s success.
A native of western Pennsylvania, McCauley began his veterinary career path at Penn State University and graduated in 1969 from the New York State College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University. After several years in practice, he established Em Tran Inc. in Elizabethtown and Em Tran West in Turlock, Calif., a leader in embryo transfer and genetics. In 2001, he moved to Lovington, N.M., and started New Direction Dairy with his family.
Now retired, with his children Kim, Moss, Jennifer and Kristin scattered around the country, McCauley enjoys the freedom to visit them along with his nine grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
