The Farm Vet Family is Growing

We will again apologize for the lack of blogging. It might be sporadic for a few more months with all of the changes in our lives. We hope to smooth it out and be back to more of a regular routine soon!
As you may have read previously the farm vet family is growing....and we have some recent additions to share with you. Meet our two cats, Hazel and Pineapple, and our three cows (we have not chosen names for them as of yet). For those that may be wondering, "baby farm vet" has not arrived yet but it should be soon in the next few weeks!

The cats were inherited and the cows we bought to help keep our pasture tidy. Two are heifers and we hope to breed them to be able to have some offspring and one is a steer that we hope to harvest. I have to admit I am excited about the thought of not having to purchase beef for cooking for a while but if the farm vet keeps up his friendly interactions and giving of grain treats, the steer might stick around for longer than we think. ;-)

And as you can see the farm vet has been busy. 

We wish everyone a happy and safe Labor Day Weekend! It is definitely LABOR day weekend for the farm vet - helping a dairy farmer with a cow that had a prolapsed uterus at 6:30 a.m. on Sunday morning. Cheers!


  1. Gotta love those early morning calls on a holiday. It's like the cows just know we're trying to schedule a bit of time to spare for the day...

  2. Dear Farm Vet,

    I came across your YouTube Channel and I thought you might be interested in some new online videos that feature an up-close and personal look at the lives of other livestock veterinarians.

    The videos are part of a series of brief webisodes sponsored by Pfizer Animal Health that feature five livestock veterinarians who volunteered to be filmed to show consumers what livestock care looks like in the U.S. You can check out the videos here:

    Please feel free to post any of the videos and if you need more information from us, please don’t hesitate to ask. Thank you!
