 Sheep and Goat Diseases, Part 2 with Nate Harvey, VMD, Diplomate ABVP (Food Animal) (6 CEUs) (Saturday, February 6, 2021)

Nate is originally from New Hampshire where his family owns a small dairy farm in Epping. He graduated from Bates College in Maine in 1999, followed by veterinary school at the University of Pennsylvania in 2003. From 2003-2008 he completed an internship, residency, and staff position in Field Service at New Bolton Center (Penn Vet’s large animal campus). During that time he specialized in dairy, beef, and small ruminant practice and he taught in several large animal courses for veterinary students at Penn Vet. In 2009 he became board certified in food animal practice by the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners, and in 2014 he was awarded Veterinarian of the Year by the Pennsylvania Veterinary Medical Association. After practicing in PA for 14 years, Nate moved back home to New Hampshire in 2017 and currently works in two separate roles. He is the Assistant State Veterinarian at the NH Department of Agriculture and he also does part-time large animal private practice in southern NH. Having recently returned home to NH, Nate would like to meet as many large animal veterinarians in the area as possible – so please introduce yourself in person or by Zoom!
