Rob’s early years working on his grandfather’s beef farm were formative. Rob graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College (OVC) in 1996. His previous jobs have included Listowel Vet Clinic (1996-1998), OVC Ruminant Field Services (1998-2010), Swackhammer Vet Services (2010-2012), and Main Street Animal Hospital (2012-2017). Rob purchased the bovine portion of the Main Street practice in 2017 and established Upper Grand Vets. Dairy cattle lameness, dairy farm profitability and reproduction are areas of special interest to Rob. He lives on a farm with his wife and 2 kids where they keep a small beef herd, 3 horses, a couple cats and a dog. In his spare time, Rob enjoys playing hockey and camping.
