At the 2018 AETA & CETA/ACTE Joint Annual Convention, two new directors were elected to the AETA Board of Directors. Their terms will start on January 1, 2019. Clay Breiner, DVM, and Pat Comyn, DVM, are the two new representatives:

Clay Breiner, DVM, was raised on an eastern Kansas cow/calf ranch that markets Hereford and Angus genetics. He received his BS in animal science (1998) and DVM (2002) from Kansas State University.

Upon graduation, he joined Cross Country Genetics as a team veterinarian and has had the privilege of working there with Dr. Kirk Gray for the past 16 years. He has been AETA certified since 2003 and is currently serving on the AETA Certification Committee.

He is married to Kendra Rock, DVM DACT, who is also actively involved in the animal reproduction industry. They have two children, Kennan (7) and Beau (3).

Dr. Breiner’s professional interests include embryo transfer, the use of ultrasound as a predictor of fertility, and ways to manipulate the gender ratio. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family at sporting events or exploring the countryside. He feels the challenge for the future is to make sure that our industry and profession stays relevant to the beef industry.

Pat Comyn, DVM. NCSU-CVM 1988. Owner of Virginia Herd Health Management Service P.C. located in Madison, Virginia. Certified AETA 2005, EU certified, owner breeder of registered Holsteins. I do general food animal medicine/surgery, ET, and OPU – IVF.

I’ve been married to my wife Barbara for 31 years. She is a small animal veterinarian. I have one kid in college (Virginia Tech), and the other kid is a research technician with Zoetis (poultry). I like to follow bird dogs in my spare time.
