This morning as I stepped out of my truck for my herd check, I paused to watch the beautiful fall sky at dawn on a nice Ohio dairy farm. I thought to myself,
“What a great job I have to get to be out in this wonderful fall weather working for a great family like this client.” We are truly in an awesome profession and
sometimes we need to step out of our truck, look around and appreciate it!
I visit this dairy every other Wednesday for herd check. I have watched their children grow up, get married and now have children of their own. I have seen the son move
into the management role while Mom and Dad step back and allow him to assume this role. I have been a part of their expansion and management plans over the years, and it
has been very rewarding. After herd check today, we had a team meeting in the dairy office to begin the process of certifying this farm with the Food Armor® program (see
details on the program on page 5). Our discussion today focused on the veterinarian-client-patient relationship (VCPR) and what it means to each of us.
