Dr. Michael Looper, Agricultural Research Service animal scientist, was recognized for his work that since 2002 has enhanced understanding of livestock-management practices, especially concerning systematic approaches to animal production. At the Dale Bumpers Small Farms Research Center in Booneville, Arkansas, Looper's fundamental research determined key mechanisms of how the brain communicates with the reproductive system in cattle. Looper has also provided unique insight into food-safety issues related to forages commonly grazed in the US.
