Jakob Malmo Bovine Practitioner Award


The Jakob Malmo Bovine Practitioner Award recognises the outstanding achievements of an ACV member in cattle veterinary practice. This is an opportunity to nominate an ACV member who has had a significant impact on the profession, industry, and community.

We are looking for the ‘salt of the earth’ cattle vets, the quiet achievers, as well as the high-profile members. The focus is on sustainability of Australian cattle veterinary practice and those members who have offered ongoing support to their peers.

In 2024, the nomination process for Jakob Malmo Bovine Practitioner Award has been simplified and the number of questions reduced. This award is available to ACV members who graduated in 2009 or earlier, and who have worked in bovine practice for most of that time. Breaks from veterinary practice will not discount nominations from being considered.

Nominations will be judged by ACV Executive Committee against the following criteria:

  • Commitment to cattle practice
  • Contribution to the veterinary profession especially in rural practice
  • Contribution to the Australian cattle industry
  • Other relevant outstanding achievements
