HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - An organization of veterinarians who work with animal reproductive biology has given its highest honor to a professor at Mississippi State University.

The American College of Theriogenologists (THEHR-ee-oh-jen-AH-luh-jists) has named Richard Hopper its “Theriogenologist of the Year” for 2016.

It says Hopper’s achievements include serving as lead editor for the book “Bovine Reproduction” in 2014 and speaking and writing about animal reproduction science for both professional and lay audiences.

The society says Hopper worked to create the animal reproduction section within MSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine. The group’s news release says that section now cares for many animals in many species and trains veterinary residents.

Hopper came to Mississippi State in 1993 after operating his own private veterinary practice for 15 years in Oneonta, Alabama.
