Welcome New Extension Veterinarian
Dr. Clell V. Bagley, D.V.M.
USU Extension Veterinarian
Dr. David J. Wilson will join the faculty at USU in early August with an appointment as an Extension Veterinarian and also as an epidemiologist at the Utah Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory.
Dr. Wilson comes with extensive experience in dairy cattle health and will greatly strengthen efforts in this area at USU. He recently completed a PhD degree at Cornell University in Epidemiology and Immunology. Prior to that, he had served at Cornell as a Senior Extension Associate for several years with particular emphasis on mastitis, but also addressing a variety of other problems of dairy cattle. He has also had several years of general veterinary practice experience. He has an extensive publication and speaking record, as well as great experience in analysis of dairy records.
Dr. Wilson will be a great resource at USU. Please give him the opportunity to speak at dairy related meetings or to assist in resolving problems on the farm. I will continue to function half time as Extension Veterinarian and half time as Extension Program Leader for Ag and Natural Resources.
