Well, another month has passed by without any blog posts. So much for my good intentions to write more in 2012. My January consisted of respiratory flu (guess I should’ve gotten that flu shot last fall…) bracketed nicely by two sinus infections. Needless to say, I was happy to see February roll around and am grateful to be feeling like a human again.
In between the illnesses, I traveled to Denver for the National Western Stock Show. I hadn’t been in several years, and had a great time catching up with friends, especially my favorite veterinary student, Val Ujazdowski!
February started out for me in Nashville, TN, where I attended the Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show. Montana had a large group in attendance and we were all very proud of our own Bill Donald, as he passed the reins of the NCBA presidency on to JD Alexander.
I’m super excited about the Collegiate Stockgrowers at Montana State University, a new club that is just forming. I’m honored to serve as the advisor for this great group of students. I missed the first meeting due to a blizzard between here and there, but was happy to get to the second meeting on campus last week. The enthusiasm in the room was great to witness!
This time of year, travel always starts to wear on me a bit. I’m looking forward to my annual ranch calving vacation next month!
