Industry Leadership Award presented to John Patience

Saskatoon, SK., March 30, 2005: Dr. John Patience, President and CEO of Prairie Swine Centre recently received the Industry Leadership Award from the Alberta Pork Congress.
“The Elanco Animal Health sponsored Pork Industry Leadership Award seeks to honour individuals whose efforts reflect a commitment above and beyond accepted expectations of the pork industry in Alberta; to recognize individuals whose actions have become a valuable asset to the pork industry; and to acknowledge individuals whose actions have become models for peer recognition” quoted Trent Harris, Awards Chair for the Alberta Pork Congress. Mr. Harris went on to note “The committee was very supportive of the nomination of Dr. Patience as a worthy recipient of this award, and our first out-of-province award winner”.
Harry Korthuis, a member of the committee who nominated Dr. Patience, points out “John’s been an active participant in the pork industry for over 20 years in western Canada, providing a significant resource to pork producers both small and large. In particular, the activities of the Prairie Swine Centre over the past dozen years have made it easy to access practical research at numerous local meetings across the prairie region. “ On the nomination for the Leadership Award Mr. Korthuis stated “Personally I really appreciate being able to get straight answers from John, you know they are backed up with good data, and the fact that he has always made himself available to answer questions and help you apply the information profitably – This is the defining difference when I think of leadership.”
Dr. Patience accepted the Industry Leadership Award at the Alberta Pork Congress Industry Awards Banquet March 16 in Red Deer, Alberta. In accepting the award Dr. Patience noted the importance of the team of researchers, technicians, students and managers at Prairie Swine Centre Inc. who make it possible to receive such recognition.
Prairie Swine Centre Inc., located in Saskatoon, is a non-profit research corporation affiliated with the University of Saskatchewan, and is recognized globally for its contributions to practical, applied science in pork production in the disciplines of Nutrition, Engineering and Animal Behaviour.
