Dr. Croushore’s professional interests include embryo transfer, pushing the limits of on farm OPU, herd health management and bovine surgery.  Dr. Croushore has been AETA Certified since 2012.  He has been an accredited OPU partner for Boviteq since 2014.

Dr. Croushore holds membership in the following professional organizations:  American Veterinary Medical Association, Pennsylvania Veterinary Medical Association, American Association of Bovine Practitioners, Society for Theriogenology, American Embryo Transfer Association and the International Embryo Transfer Society. In addition, Dr. Croushore is the treasurer for the Somerset County Holstein Association and is a member of the Berlin-Brothersvalley School District Ag Advisory Committee.

Dr. Croushore writes a weekly column in the Somerset Daily American entitled “The View from the Back 40” and a monthly column in Farm, Field and Garden.  He is also a regular contributor to Pinzgauer Journal and also the Keystone Cattleman.

He enjoys time with his family, hunting the often elusive whitetail deer, fishing and home brewing beer.  Dr. Croushore is married to his wife of 22 years, Sheila and the proud father of Nolan and Bena.  He attends St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church where he teaches 8th grade CCD class.

 

Jeremy VanBoening received his BS degree from University of Nebraska-Lincoln in Animal Science in 1998 and his DVM from Kansas State University in 2002. He practiced in South Dakota one year before purchasing a 2 doctor practice in Alma, NE in 2003.  The practice has grown and changed over the years and currently has 5 doctors and 12 support staff. In 2010 Republican Valley Genetics was founded to provide ET services for the clinic and is the focus of Dr. VanBoening today. RVG provides in house and on farm ET services as well as serves as a satellite center for IVF services with Trans Ova Genetics.

Jeremy has served on several professional boards and committees including the Nebraska Cattlemen, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, American Association of Bovine Practitioners, and Nebraska Veterinary Medical Association.  These associations have allowed him experience with domestic and international trade, policy making both at the state and federal level, sustainability in the beef industry and bovine veterinarian practice, as well as the opportunity for contacts throughout the industry.  Professional memberships include AETA, IETS, AABP, AVC, AVMA, and NVMA.

Jeremy and his wife Erin have one son William who is 10 years old.  In addition to the RVAC and RVG they run 400 beef cows comprised of a commercial cow-calf and a growing recipient herd.  He feels it would be an honor to serve the organization that gave him the knowledge and confidence to begin and grow the embryo transfer business.
