You are cordially invited to join a retirement reception for Jim Berardinelli on Thursday, August 23, 8:30am-10:30am in 138 Animal Bioscience Building.
For the last 37 years, Berardinelli, professor of animal science in MSU’s Department of Animal and Range Sciences, has taught students how to be familiar with the rear end of a cow. In more than three decades of teaching and researching animal reproductive science at MSU, about 2,500 students have passed through his classrooms and labs, some of them spanning generations from the same family.
Many of Berardinelli’s students have taken skills they’ve learned from his classes and labs back to family ranches or to their professions. Over the years, Berardinelli’s emphasis and instruction on new technologies in cattle breeding has helped transform many next-generation cattle producers, while impacting the genetics of Montana cattle herds through the use of artificial insemination.
