Career Goals:

I am a bit of an unconventional vet student Comparing my future career goals to others. Through my experience growing up in the goat industry I have found an interest in reproduction. More specifically goat embryo transfer. The goat industry is growing and not many people have heard of embryo transfer in small ruminants. Not only is there a market for the show stock, I think the commercial goat industry will begin to use this service. Embryo transfer allows for rapid genetic improvement in individual herds and breeds as a whole. I could see the goat industry becoming mainstream as more research and advertising is done.
