Lachmann is remembered by her friends and colleagues as having a true passion for swine nutrition and its role in moving the industry forward.

Individuals interested in supporting graduate education in the swine industry are encouraged to contribute to a scholarship in memory of former Oklahoma State University alumna and Purina swine nutritionist Mariela Lachmann. Alternatively, breast cancer awareness T-shirts and hoodies can be purchased during October with proceeds supporting the scholarship fund.

The scholarship is in development at Oklahoma State University, where Lachmann earned her Ph.D. in swine nutrition, and will be awarded annually to a graduate student pursuing a degree related to swine nutrition with a focus on environmental impact, reproduction or animal health.

Lachmann, of Hugo, Minn., died Feb. 28, 2018 at age 48 after a battle with breast cancer. She is survived by her husband, Cesar Prado, and two daughters, Sofia and Sara.

Lachmann is remembered by her friends and colleagues as having a true passion for swine nutrition and its role in moving the industry forward. One of her many accomplishments included developing feed formulas that minimized phosphorus and nitrogen excretion and cut ammonia emissions in swine manure.

Scholarship donations may be made online. Breast cancer awareness shirts may be purchased at the Spirit Wear eStore.
