Mr Lysgaard, who stepped down from the IPC Executive Committee during the Paris meeting, was recognized for his contributions to the organization, which grew out of an idea Mr Lysgaard presented during a meeting of the World Poultry Science Association conference in the 1970s.

Mr Lysgaard's idea finally came to fruition when the IPC was founded in 2005.
