Dr. Émile Bouchard Receives the 2022 Dr. Brian MacNaughton Memorial Award

Elanco Canada honours Dr. Émile Bouchard with the third Brian MacNaughton Memorial Award, recognizing his outstanding contributions to bovine veterinary medicine in Canada.

“We are pleased to recognize Dr. Bouchard for his contributions to the field of bovine veterinary medicine”, said Michelle McCotter, General Manager of Elanco Canada. “Dr. Bouchard is renowned for his leadership and implication in the veterinary profession and truly embodies the spirit and purpose of the Dr. Brian MacNaughton Memorial Award.”

Born into a famous hockey playing family, Dr. Bouchard graduated in 1981 from the Faculté de médecine vétérinaire (FMV) of the Université de Montréal. After his internship, he started working at the FMV Ambulatory Clinic in 1982. Realizing the importance of modernizing dairy herd health management at the Ambulatory Clinic and in the province, Emile obtained a leave of absence in 1984 to pursue a population medicine residency program and an MPVM degree at the University of California, Davis.

Upon his return in 1988, in addition to his teaching and field service roles at FMV, Emile led, along with his colleagues Drs. Michel Bigras-Poulin and Denis Du Tremblay, the large R&D endeavour called Projet ASTLQ (Improvement of Dairy Herd Health in Quebec), which resulted in 1993 with the development of the dairy herd health software DSA, now used by the majority of dairy veterinarians in Quebec. He also developed the Dairy Population Medicine Residency Program at FMV in 1991 and contributed to the launch of the Canadian Bovine Mastitis Research Network, headquartered at FMV, in 2001.

Finally, in addition to his involvement with Quebec practitioners, Emile represented Canadian veterinarians as the director of District 12 of the American Association of Bovine Practitioners from 1995 to 2001 and was instrumental in making the 1997 Annual AABP conference in Montreal a great success. Emile also acted as a Canadian representative to the World Association for Buiatrics (WAB) since 1998 and was the President of the organizing committee for the 2004 World Buiatrics Congress in Quebec City. He was most recently President of the WAB, with his 2018 term ending at the Madrid World Buiatrics Congress in September 2022.

Dr. Luc DesCôteaux, Professor and colleague from FMV, nominated Dr. Bouchard for the Brian MacNaughton Memorial Award. This award is named in memory of Dr. Brian MacNaughton, an outstanding bovine veterinarian from Ontario who had the vision of a national bovine veterinary organization that would represent the interests of bovine veterinarians in matters of national scope. Dr. MacNaughton passed away in September 2014 after a courageous battle with cancer. Presented biennially, Elanco Canada is proud to sponsor this award to recognize and commemorate Dr. MacNaughton’s vision, his spirit, and his passion

Dr. Schwartzkopf-Genswein is a senior research scientist with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada where she leads research on beef cattle and welfare. Her research interests include pain/stress assessment and mitigation strategies associated with routine management procedures such as transport, castration, dehorning and lameness. She is also an adjunct professor at the University of Saskatchewan, University of Calgary and UNESP University in Brazil.

Dr. Schwartzkopf-Genswein shares her passion for cattle welfare with the next generation of researchers and scientists by mentoring, training and guiding undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral fellows who are making their own significant contributions in academia, government and industry. She also provides training and consultative services to cattle industry stakeholders and speaks at scientific and industry conferences around the world.

“I am very honoured to receive this award,” said Dr. Schwartzkopf-Genswein. “Especially because it is acknowledgement from peers and industry stakeholders that the work my team and I have done in beef cattle welfare has had relevance for producers, veterinarians and cattle alike.”   

Dr. Schwartzkopf-Genswein is recognized by her peers for her devotion to improving the welfare of beef cattle and for her work that has led to the advancement of research methods for assessing animal welfare.

In his support for the award nomination, Tim McAllister, Principal Research Scientist with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, said Dr. Schwartzkopf-Genswein is a pioneer in her field, and she has limitless energy that she dedicates towards beef cattle welfare.

“She has established many of the methods presently used to assess bovine welfare and has contributed to the best management practices that have been adopted by the bovine industry in the past and present,” he said. “Her enthusiasm is directed to accomplishments that are anchored in delivering benefits directly to the North American beef industry.”

Derek Groff, Business Unit Director (Livestock) with Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health Canada, explained the Metacam® 20 Bovine Welfare Award recognizes and encourages those who research and work to advance animal welfare and well-being.
