Dr. Daryl Olsen was named the 2022 recipient of the American Association of Swine Veterinarians’ Meritorious Service Award during the association’s 53rd Annual Meeting in Indianapolis. The award recognizes individuals who have provided outstanding service to the AASV.
Olsen grew up on a livestock farm in South Dakota. He earned his BS at South Dakota State University and DVM at Iowa State University. Immediately after graduating in 1982, he went to the Audubon Veterinary Clinic, what was then a traditional mixed-animal veterinary clinic. Audubon-Manning Veterinary Clinic (AMVC) has since developed into a diversified veterinary practice and swine production company doing business in 15 states, employing 23 veterinarians, and 750 total employees. Dr. Olsen is a partner at AMVC, currently serving as a managing partner for AMVC, LLC.
Dr. Olsen played a key role in establishing and currently serves on the board of directors for the Swine Medicine Education Center at Iowa State University. He chairs the Swine Health Information Center’s Board of Directors. He is committed to his community, as evidenced by his philanthropic leadership.
As expected of a recipient of the Meritorious Service award, Dr. Olsen has given tirelessly to the AASV. He has served on the AASV Fountain Auction Committee, multiple issue-based committees, the Program Planning Committee, and was president in 2007. Dr. Olsen’s vice-presidential campaign platform was to support the mission of the AASV. He devoted his tenure to ensuring the AASV continued to be a strong organization that united swine veterinarians.
Dr. Olsen’s peers admire his ability to always bring out the very best in those around him. He has built a swine veterinary and management business whose greatest accomplishment may be encouraging and allowing the growth and development of his colleagues in the swine veterinary profession.
Grateful for the association, Olsen stated, “Being recognized by your peers is probably the greatest achievement in a professional career. But more importantly, my involvement in AASV has provided me with unbelievable personal and professional satisfaction. AASV is an amazing organization, and I am so proud to be a member.”
Daryl and Nancy’s family includes two amazing daughters and their families. Erika and her husband, Matt Weber, have two daughters, Lucy and Ruby, and reside in Waukee, Iowa. Dena and her husband, Dan Hoffman, have a son, Mack, and a daughter, Ellie, and reside in Prior Lake, Minnesota.
