Courtney Matthias grew up on a livestock and crop farm, and she wanted a job that combined her love of science, cattle, and people. She went to MSU to become a large animal veterinarian, and she has been with the Sterner Veterinary Clinic for three years. She spends most of her time on dairy farms checking for pregnancy and maintaining care protocols. She, her husband Zac, and her daughter Zoey live in Ionia, where they love making use of the extensive trail system.

Listen as Courtney talks about:

  • How her first surgery patient became her best friend
  • What farmers do to make sure cows are comfortable – fans, beds, climate
  • How being blessed with long arms makes some vet work easier
  • What surprises people about her job
  • Her latest hobby – cake decorating
