COLLEGE STATION, TX - Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM) has entered into an agreement to create an Educational Alliance with Cargill/Nutrena, Inc. that will benefit the college and enhance the education of DVM students.

Representatives from both the college and Cargill were on hand to sign the agreement in a ceremony held today at the CVM.

"Cargill/Nutrena, Inc. is pleased to assist in advancing the programs and educational opportunities for veterinary medical students at Texas A&M University," said John Windwehen, Cargill Inc., South Texas General Manager. "We have had a long relationship with many programs at Texas A&M University, and we realized that we needed to strengthen our relationship with the College of Veterinary Medicine. This college is at the forefront of veterinary medical education, and to be able to support their continued excellence is a tremendous opportunity for us. We look forward to working together with the faculty and staff of the CVM to promote animal health."

As a part of the Educational Alliance, Cargill will work with the CVM to develop nutrition education opportunities for veterinarians and clients. In addition, Cargill will provide student scholarships, achievement awards, and will bring in leaders in the agri-business industry as guest speakers for continuing education and classroom programs.

"The College of Veterinary Medicine has been very fortunate to have excellent support for our programs from the agri-business industry," said Dr. H. Richard Adams, dean of veterinary medicine. "Cargill/Nutrena, Inc. has been a friend to the CVM for many years, and their commitment to and continued support of our faculty, staff, students, and programs is truly appreciated."

The Educational Alliance is designed to enhance horse and livestock health through education of veterinarians, veterinary medical students, faculty and horse/livestock owners about current trends in nutrition management. The initial term for the alliance is for two years.
