Alltech Student Research Manuscript Award


The 2020 Alltech Student Manuscript Award was awarded to Ms. Sarah Struthers, currently completing a doctoral degree in genetics and genomics at the Roslin Institute of the University of Edinburgh.  The award is given to a student who was the senior author of an outstanding research manuscript published in either Poultry Science or the Journal of Applied Poultry Research.

The manuscript selected as the winning submission was based on the effect of beak tissue sloughing and post-treatment beak shape on pullets subjected to day-old infrared beak treatment.  This is an important contribution to the literature and justifies the use of this technology that has fortunately largely replaced hot-blade beak trimming.  Ms. Struthers earned a BS. degree in Animal Science from the University of Saskatchewan in 2015 and completed the Masters degree in 2016 on her thesis topic.


This is the ninth year of the Alltech Student Research Manuscript Award  recognizing young leaders for their commitment to scientific innovation and publishing.
