MSA is pleased to announce an exciting collaborative agreement between Dr. Don Höglund, DVM, and the firm’s Agricultural Services team, offering animal behavior, safe and efficient animal handling, animal and human interaction consultation, and on-farm skills workshop services to farmers and MSA agricultural clients across the Midwest.
Dr. Höglund first began collaborating with MSA’s Agricultural Services team in April, 2019, and has since been consulting with farms and agricultural businesses of all sizes in the design of farm layouts and infrastructure, the management of robotic milking barns and education about the sustainable health and welfare of animals. Together, the agricultural engineers at MSA and Dr. Höglund are committed to helping farmers work smarter, not harder – developing systems for the efficient long-term well-being of farms, animals, and farm communities.
Dr. Höglund is a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and graduate of the College of Veterinary Medicine at Colorado State University.
