Bringing Solutions Back to the Farm

Dr. Chris Sievers (’16)
When Chris Sievers works with his clients on-farm, he tries not to simply give a protocol or make a treatment decision and walk away. He strives to also provide the “why.” “Discussion on-site is needed to evaluate if there are things that we can improve on, how we handled and implemented to that point, and give the follow-up that’s needed to be successful – with not only the problem at hand, but also to try to prevent the next one and do the best we can for the next groups,” said the veterinarian with Swine Vet Center in northwest Iowa.
