New USU Extension Veterinarian

Hi, I�m Dr. Doug Hammon and I am excited to be serving, along with Dr. Clell Bagley, as Extension Veterinarian at USU. My new position will be divided between extension (50%), research (25%), and clinical veterinary medicine (25%). Although I am new to extension, I have been at USU for nearly ten years. For the past five years I have been Clinical Assistant Professor in the Animal, Dairy, and Veterinary Sciences Department at USU, serving as clinical veterinarian, research scientist, and teacher. I grew up on a general farm in Davis county and graduated from Weber State University. I received my D.V.M. from Washington State University in 1994, spent time in a dairy practice in Sunnyside, Washington, and received a PhD in Animal Science (Reproduction) from USU in 1998. My veterinary interests are primarily in production diseases of dairy cattle and bovine reproduction. My research has focused on relationships between nutrition and reproduction in dairy cattle. I look forward to the challenge of carrying on the rich tradition of veterinary extension at USU, and I am excited to have the opportunity to work with Dr. Bagley and with Utah�s dairy producers and dairy health professionals.
