Oklahoma Beef, Pork Industry Leaders Hail New OSU Animal Science Head
The Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association and the Oklahoma Pork Council say they are excited to welcome Dr. Clint Rusk to Oklahoma State University as the new Department Head in Animal Science.

“Oklahoma’s cattle industry is the largest segment of our state’s agricultural economy,” said Scott Dewald, executive vice-president of OCA. “It is critical to have leadership in the Animal Science Department at OSU that not only recognizes the role the cattle industry plays in our state, but also embraces it. Dr. Rusk has a tremendous background in the cattle industry and his experience will be invaluable.”

“The challenges facing Oklahoma’s pork producers and all livestock producers in the state are growing almost daily,” said Roy Lee Lindsey, okPORK executive director. “We need a dynamic Animal Science department at OSU to help us meet those challenges. The first time you meet Dr. Rusk, you see and hear the passion he has for agriculture and for livestock production. That passion will help us meet our challenges head on.”
