BROOKINGS, S.D. — Jamie Parham, graduate student at South Dakota State University’s College of Agriculture and Biological Sciences, was awarded the Beef Improvement Federation Frank Baker Award during the organization’s recent annual convention in Biloxi, Miss. Parham was awarded a $1,000 scholarship for her essay, “The effect of discovery bias on genomic selection and why it can no longer be ignored.” Her submission was based on her research project examining the accuracy of genomic selection. The BIF convention serves to facilitate discussion and provide education on current issues facing the beef industry and relay information to beef producers about research being conducted. Parham was one of two essay scholarship winners. Parham, originally from North Carolina, earned her bachelor’s degree in animal science at North Carolina State University.
