A CEO of a dairy cattle feed company was named the Huntley College of Agriculture’s 2019 Distinguished Alumni Award recipient.

William Bunnett (’59, animal science) is the CEO of Energy Feeds International LLC, which is a leading provider of rumen inert bypass fats of palm fatty acids and mineral supplements to the dairy industry.

Bunnett attended classes as the original Cal Poly Voorhis Unit in San Dimas and then – after a two-year stint in the U.S. Navy – at the Kellogg-Voorhis Unit in Pomona. He managed the sheep center, assisted in teaching sheep husbandry, and helped with lambing, feeding, shearing, and breeding. The Scottsdale, Ariz., resident also participated in the Sunday Horse Shows and was president of the Animal Husbandry Club.

The Cal Poly Pomona Alumni Association honored Bunnett and the other 2019 award recipients at an April 13 ceremony at the Pacific Palms Resort in Industry.

The awards honor alumni who have either served Cal Poly Pomona or their local, national or global community; or have attained outstanding achievement in a profession or vocation.
