COLUMBIA -- Tyler Stratman, Sikeston, received the H.A. Herman Memorial A.I. Industry Scholarship from the Division of Animal Sciences in the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources at the University of Missouri.

The scholarship is given to graduate students studying reproductive physiology. Stratman's research interests are in the reproductive efficiency of dairy cattle.

"I am pleased to receive an award which commemorates a faculty member who was so influential in the field of applied reproductive physiology," Stratman said. "I appreciate the support as I begin my own career in the artificial insemination industry. I would like to thank the National Association of Breeders for their continued support of University of Missouri animal science graduate students."

Stratman is a graduate student pursuing his master's degree in animal science with an emphasis in reproductive physiology. He graduated from Notre Dame Regional High School in 2007 and is the son of Shon and Jennifer Stratman.

MU is the largest and oldest university of the state's major public, land-grant research institutions.
