The USDA’s funding of $300,000 for the extension of the work in Bangladesh through 2011. In addition, as a direct result of this extension, the USDA funded a proposal from colleagues at Bangladesh Agricultural University another $300,000 in a project that will require integration with its extended Field fertility project. Along with this developing the project team from the U-W campus with Professor’s Harry Momont, John Parrish, Milo Wiltbank, Jess Reed and Gary Frank along with a 2004 UW-SVM graduate Dr. Rachel Klos taking on project responsibilities. The USDA has also spent $50,000 on a guest house to host U-W scientists at Bangladesh Agricultural University.
Dr. Goodger is coordinator of the programs of the U-W-SVM Charmany dairy teaching herd. The teaching herd is a milking dairy herd of 54 cows shipping milk to Foremost Farms. The herd has 43 replacement heifers and calves. The teaching herd is used by 28 laboratories in the school’s curriculum;There have been almost 275 students to work in the teaching herd since its inception in Sept 2000;and the VMTH provides ambulatory services through Large Animal Medicine, Large Animal Surgery, and Theriogenology to the herd.
Dr. Goodger teaches a Herd health rotation for both 4th year students and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd year students. Provide opportunity for students to be responsible for the health of the Teaching Herd by making clinical decisions on treatment/monitoring, and implementing those decisions by themselves or through supervision of pre-clinical students.
