Livestock Health Legacy

For 30 years, Dr. Bob Pierson (’43) was a fixture at Colorado State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. In addition to teaching food animal courses, Pierson ran the large animal ambulatory division. Now a new scholarship has been established in his memory, supporting veterinary students at Colorado State who have an academic focus on livestock health and production. After his retirement, he redirected his talents to becoming a watercolor artist, including the painting featured above.
