My wife, Whitney, graduated veterinary school
from the University of Missouri Mizzou last Friday
and I thought I’d share some pictures from the ceremony.
Due to what all is going on right now they
had to do an online ceremony and patch everyone
in virtually together. Well, it was scheduled for Friday
afternoon, but we also had 20 head of heifers that had
to have CIDRs put in that afternoon. So we got them
up and started working them while she logged into
the group ceremony on her phone and had it up and
playing while still running the chute and pulling up
injections and tailing for me putting in CIDRs.
When the time came she stopped and said her oath
with the rest of the class, completed the ceremony
then it was right back to working again. It made for a
pretty funny sight.
After 8 years of schooling the graduation ceremony
is usually the moment everyone looks forward to;
dressing up, celebrating with friends and family, the
after parties. But when you raise cattle, the work still
has to be done on schedule no matter what else is
Travis King: We are located in northern Missouri. We have a smallish
commercial cow/calf herd that we’re working on growing, primarily raising Red
Angus Cattle. We also recently started doing our own backgrounding. My wife,
Whitney, recently took a job at a mixed animal practice, but has a passion for and
is wanting to specialize in the equine and cattle side of things. She’s also currently
taking chiropractic classes and will soon be a licensed animal chiropractor.
