A Utah State University Extension veterinarian credited for his work in reducing major sheep and livestock diseases in Utah is the recipient of the E.G. Peterson Extension Award.

Clell V. Bagley, professor of animal, dairy and veterinary sciences, will receive extension's top award at the 100th commencement Saturday, June 5, at the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum."Dr. Bagley stands out as the top extension specialist in the department," said Robert C. Lamb, department chairman. "More than one person, including some from other states, have suggested that he is the best extension veterinarian in the United States."

He has the ability to identify problems facing the livestock, dairy and sheep industries and mobilize the resources available to solve them, said Norris J. Stenquist, USU Extension livestock specialist.

A USU graduate in 1965, Bagley received his doctorate in veterinary medicine from Colorado State University in 1968. He has served on several boards and organizations on national and local levels, including president of the Utah Veterinary Medical Association.

USU Extension is the educational link between the university and the youth and adults of the state. It includes the youth 4-H program and the continuing education arm of the university. USU Extension field staff and faculty, including extension agents, are located in all 29 county offices.
