Celebrating 50 Years

Ken ('65) and Gerry Schumann ('67) We recently ran across this story of husband and wife Ken and Gerry Schumann, who started the Hartland Animal Hospital in 1968 after graduating from Iowa State’s College of Veterinary Medicine. One thing Gerry remembers is just how busy they were as a solo practice. There were no specialty practices so the Schumanns handled everything while balancing raising their six children. Today the couple is retired, but in 2018 the practice celebrated its 50th anniversary and was chronicled in this article published in their local newspaper.
