Dr. Michael Wolf
Veterinarian @Country Doctors Veterinary Service
Dr. Michael J. Wolf has been a dairy practitioner since graduation from University of Minnesota 1979. He has been the owner of Country Doctors Veterinary Service since 1988 in Menomonie, WI. Since 2007 he has had an increasing role as the consulting veterinarian for VES-Artex (formerly VES) of Chippewa Falls, WI. This role has involved research in barn design, fresh air flow delivery and cooling strategies in new and refurbished adult and young stock facilities. Studying air flow patterns with sectional velocity mapping and video taping in multiple barn arrangements has led to improved ventilation designs. The success of these systems is reflected in improved production, reproduction and animal health parameters with a ROI to the dairy owner. This research has included VES sponsored research projects with Kansas State University on the effectiveness of creating air flow at the animal level with ECV72 fans & high pressure fog to encourage increased laying times and
