Beef Cattle Producers Session – Monday, January 8, 2018

Exhibit Hall Board Room

Our featured speaker this year is Dr. Matthew Weeman, DVM. Dr. Weeman founded Bayside Bovine Veterinary Services, a mobile veterinary practice, in December 2016. ​ Dr. Weeman grew up on a dairy farm in northeastern Ohio. He attended The Ohio State University where he obtained his B.S. in agriculture in 2010 and went on to earn his doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in 2013 when he graduated as president of his class. He later earned his M.S. in Comparative and Veterinary Medicine in 2016. 

He began his career in the heart of dairy production in the Finger Lakes region of New York before relocating to the Delmarva Peninsula in 2015. He will tailor his services to meet the unique needs of herds with thousands of cows and those with just a few 4-H animals.  He lives with his wife Hannah who serves the industry in her role as communications director of the Animal Agriculture Alliance in Arlington, Virginia.
