Dave Sjeklocha, DVM

Dr. Dave joined the Cattle Empire team in 2011 after serving as our consulting veterinarian for several years. His goal is to provide the most effective animal health and animal welfare programs for our cattle. In recent years, beef consumers have become more concerned about where their food comes from and how it is raised. We believe you should have confidence in the food you eat, which means you need to have confidence in us. Americans want to know, for instance, how antibiotics are used and how the animals are treated while they are being raised for beef. We at Cattle Empire are leaders in developing strict antibiotic usage guidelines and in animal welfare training of our employees. We work closely with the Beef Cattle Institute at Kansas State University and use the online employee training modules to assure our employees are certified in Beef Quality Assurance and Animal Welfare.

Dr. Dave works with our cattle handling crews to teach them how to do a better job of keeping cattle stress to a minimum. Not only does this help the cattle do their best job for us, but our team members enjoy their jobs more when they are given goals and proper instruction to achieve these goals.
