Posted by stephanie rogers on May 19, 2021 in News

Dr. Alan Fredeen will be retiring from the Department of Animal Science and Aquaculture at the end of May.  

Alan joined the Department of Animal Science, Nova Scotia Agricultural College, in 1985 and has been a strong contributor to the department and the Faculty of Agriculture since that time. 

Alan’s research in dairy nutrition has been recognized through many Faculty and national awards, including the 1996 Award as Outstanding Young Agrologist, Agricultural Institute of Canada and the 2012 Distinguished Scientist Award from the Nova Scotia Institute of Agrologists.  

Many students at both undergraduate and graduate level have benefitted from his innovative teaching with emphasis on sustainable dairy production. 

Alan will be missed but we all wish him the best in his well-earned retirement.  

The Department will be holding a virtual farewell event on Wednesday, May 19 from 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm on Microsoft Teams; you are welcome to attend.
