Dr. Mike Kidd of the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture
LITTLE ROCK -- Mike Kidd, director of the Center of Excellence for Poultry Science
for the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture, has been named the
2014 Industry Leader of the Year by The Poultry Federation.
The Poultry Federation, an organization covering Arkansas, Missouri and Oklahoma,
honors outstanding individuals with this award for their contributions to the poultry
and egg industry. The federation began honoring industry leaders in 1955, the year
following its founding in 1954.
Kidd was chosen because of his achievements in leading the department, supporting
research, increasing both the number of students and their participation in poultry
and egg industry, said Marvin Childers, president of The Poultry Federation and last
year’s Industry Leader of the Year.
“Dr. Kidd has revitalized the poultry science department at the University of Arkansas,”
Kidd was surprised when given the honor. He said he didn’t know he was even nominated.
“It’s an absolute personal honor. I just can’t get over being honored like this,”
said Mike Kidd, who is also head of the Poultry Science Department and a professor.
“We are working hard to get more students trained and placed in key industry jobs
that become great careers, as well as supporting our research and extension programs,”
The award was made June 13.
