The lives of animals and humans around the world are happier, healthier and more productive thanks to Dr. W. Eugene Lloyd. For the past five decades, his pharmaceutical and nutritional products have been used by veterinarians and physicians throughout the world to aid in the treatment of diseases and nutritional deficiencies.

Through LLOYD, Inc., Lloyd has invested heavily in research and development. His commitment to exploring, sharing and applying knowledge is further demonstrated by his service through the U.S. Army Specialized Training Program, U.S. Navy and Fleet Marine Corps, his 10 years as a professor of veterinary pathology and toxicology at Iowa State and his 15 years as a private practitioner of veterinary medicine – as well as his remarkable generosity to Iowa State University as both a volunteer and philanthropist.

Lloyd has long been active in professional societies and organizations dedicated to improving global health, including the American Board of Veterinary Toxicology (Diplomate), the Animal Health Institute, the Council for Agricultural Science and Technology, the Iowa and American Veterinary Medical Associations, Iowa Biotechnology Association and ISU Research Foundation. He has been featured in two books: “28 Leaders in Veterinary Medicine in US During Mid-20th Century” and “Iowans Who Have Made a Difference: 150 Years of Agricultural Progress.”

Lloyd has received honors including the American Board of Veterinary Toxicology’s Service Award, Iowa Small Business Exporter of the Year, the Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine’s Stange Award for Meritorious Service, the Iowa State University Foundation Order of the Knoll Campanile Award and the Farm Bureau Award.

Lloyd served on several boards at the city, state and national levels. He was a longtime resident of Shenandoah, Iowa, where he was active in Rotary, First Presbyterian Church, the Greater Shenandoah Foundation, Chamber of Commerce and the Shenandoah American Legion Post #88. He received the community’s Outstanding Service to Agriculture Award in 1988.

On campus, Lloyd has been an ISU Foundation governor and served as vice chair of both Campaign Destiny and Campaign Iowa State: With Pride and Purpose, among many other volunteer and leadership positions. Iowa State University’s Lloyd Veterinary Medical Center is named in recognition of the great generosity of Dr. Lloyd and his wife, Linda.

Eugene and Linda Lloyd are both Order of the Knoll William M. Beardshear Society and Campanile Society members, as well as Iowa State University Alumni Association life members.
