Nick Mayer DVM
Nick grew up on a family dairy farm near Sheboygan, WI. His love for cows and veterinary medicine started at a young age while watching their farm vet work on sick cows. He chased off to the University of Minnesota for his undergraduate degree in Animal Science. He enjoyed cheering on the Gophers so much, despite their unimpressive football record, he stuck around another four years to pursue his veterinary degree. He graduated in 2014 and spent the next four years practicing dairy medicine in Southeastern, WI. It was there he developed a strong interest in calf health, nutrition and helping producers build productive youngstock programs. For the past two years, Nick worked for Land O Lakes as a calf specialist travelling across Wisconsin in support of cooperatives and nutritionists. In this role, he helped producers improve their calf and heifer programs by focusing on nutrition and benchmarking performance.
Nick is excited to join the team at Waupun Vets. He is looking forward to getting back into practice and working directly with farms. Nick and his wife Becky have a sweet and spunky 10-month-old named Stella. Outside of being a husband and dad, he enjoys running and woodworking. Don’t hesitate to introduce yourself if you see him out in the countryside.
