This year we are pleased to welcome our Keynote Speaker, Jerry Rusch, DVM. Dr. Rusch was raised on a grain and livestock farm in Southern Indiana.  In 1991 he received his DVM from Purdue University and then spent two years in dairy practice in Eastern Pennsylvania.  In 1993 Jerry and his wife, Dr. Karen, purchased Spring Mill Veterinary Service, a mixed animal practice in Mitchell, Indiana where he continues to practice.  In 2000 he became a diplomate of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners in Beef Cattle.   Jerry is currently president and general manager of the Springville Feeder Auction, which is a local farmer owner feeder calf marketing cooperative.   He is also a member of AABP and the Society for Theriogenology.   Jerry joined Multimin USA in March 2018.
