NMSU Ranchers' Roundtable Addresses Herd Health

13:32PM Mar 07, 2014

Ranchers will have an opportunity to ask two of New Mexico's top veterinarians their questions about herd health during a Ranchers' Roundtable on Wednesday, March 19, at New Mexico State University's Southwest Center for Rangeland Sustainability in Corona, N.M.

Panel members will be John Wenzel, NMSU Extension veterinarian, Tim Hanosh, director of New Mexico Department of Agriculture's state diagnostic lab, and John Pollreis, Zoetis pharmaceutical's technical service veterinarian.

"This will be a great opportunity for New Mexicans to get answers to questions about all things animal health, from current disease monitoring and occurrence, vaccination protocols and which vaccine is important, to what to be on the lookout for that may influence livestock movements across the state and to other states," said Shad Cox, superintendent of NMSU's Corona Range and Livestock Research Center. "Also, a veterinarian from Zoetis will delve into the details of developments in and effectiveness of current vaccines."

The program will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Lunch will be served. For directions to the center, visit the Corona Range and Livestock Research Center's website at
