Meet Dr. Bob Sager
Dr. Bob (Beef) grew up on a registered Hereford ranch near Manhattan, Montana and has been a rancher all his life. He presently practices and ranches near Wilsall, Montana northeast of Bozeman, Montana.
Bob obtained his formal education with a BS in Animal Science at Montana State University, a DVM from Colorado State University in 1974 and practiced for thirty six years while owning two practices in south central Montana. When he became eligible for Social Security at age 62 he used his SS checks to go back to graduate school to obtain his PhD in micro-mineral nutrition affecting the immune system of beef cattle. This interest developed while in practice working with chronic BRD immune vaccine failure and suppressed beef calves.
While in practice he mentored over 300 veterinary students many practicing in Montana and Wyoming. While in graduate school he wrote a chapter in Brad Smith’s Large Animal Internal Medicine and has published several research articles involving cobalt supplementation affecting the humoral immune system in beef calves and has spoken at national and international veterinary meetings on the subject of mineral nutrition and mineral deficiencies affecting health and performance.
He finished his PhD at Montana State University and while teaching beef production classes a recruiting firm called from Moscow, Russia. The past two years he has been employed as a Senior Veterinarian with Miratorg Holdings near Bryansk,, Russia supervising 60 Russian veterinarians and responsible for the health and biosecurity of over 437,000 beef cattle that are on 33 cow-calf farms, 24 yearling or stocker operations, and two 45,000 + head feedlots. He is now at his ranch in the Big Sky Country and practices beef cattle production medicine with his business and consults with Medicine Creek Bovine Health Solutions and Consulting while still ranching near Wilsall, Montana. He is passionate about beef cattle medicine and health.
Bob has seven children and nine grandchildren and his hobby is fly fishing (many donated trips through AABP, ABVP scholarship auctions), ranching and working the soil, and throwing the hammer as he has competed in 30 US National Championships and 15 WMA World Championships on five continents since climbing out of his rolled over pickup while on a ranch call thirty years ago. He considers his life and career very blessed and has always been proud and fortunate to be a veterinarian mentored by some of the very best in the profession. He prefers to be called Bob or Beef to his colleagues.
