When I graduated in 1978, there were very few women large animal veterinarians, and it was nearly impossible for me to find a job. I finally found work in a dairy practice in Utah. Now I am gathering oral histories of other women from that era who were pioneers in large animal medicine; dairy, beef, equine, swine, and poultry. If you have stories of breaking into what was then an almost all male profession, or know someone who does, I would like to hear from you. I look forward to hearing your stories!
