UK - MSD Animal Health (known as Merck Animal Health in the USA and Canada) is proud to support the award of the Gustav Rosenberger Memorial Fund Scholarship to Dr. Guilherme Rizzoto, a veterinarian from Brazil, at The World Buiatrics Congress in Dublin, Ireland, on July 3, 2016.

The Gustav Rosenberger Memorial Fund (GRMF) works to further improve bovine medicine at an international level and to stimulate bovine research in its broadest sense.

Dr. Guilherme Rizzoto was selected by the GRMF board based on a combination of his educational background, experience, potential for further development and research plans related to the affect heat stress has on fertility in different bull breeds. Understanding temperature regulation will allow Rizzoto to research potential new options to prevent and treat infertility in bulls – a relevant topic in Brazil. His research will continue under the supervision of Professor John P. Kastelic, University of Calgary.

“Brazil is one of the largest exporters of beef in the world and we raise these cattle in one of the warmest climates,” said Rizzoto. “It is vital that we understand the implications heat stress has on bulls in order to identify best practices for improving reproduction and ultimately the economic success of this industry in our country.”

The Global Ruminants Business Unit at MSD Animal Health is proud to support and invest in young professionals and veterinarians at the start of their professional career who are vital to our future. The service, ideas, and insights they will provide throughout their careers will well exceed the scope of the education and support they receive.
