UConn Today reported that the UConn Board of Trustees approved the naming of Jerry Yang Road to honor the memory of Xiangzhong ‘Jerry’ Yang, who was an internationally renowned animal science professor before his death. The article said, “He is best remembered for cloning Amy, a Holstein calf born at UConn in June 1999, the first cloned farm animal in the United States.” Yang is also memorialized at several sites in his native Hebei Province, China.

The new sign is installed on the street that leads to the UConn Dairy Bar from Route 195.
