Staff Spotlight: Jeff Bergman Friday, April 23, 2021
I began my career with the University at the Cow/Calf Unit at Mead as an Ag Research Technician in 1980. Some of my job responsibilities included overseeing the health and well being of the Physiology and teaching herds. In addition, I performed artificial insemination and palpation for determining pregnancy. In 2014 I was moved to to a position at the Animal Science building to oversee the Physiology herd and assist and coordinate the research trials with graduate students at both Lincoln and in Mead. Other duties include assisting with the teaching herd, coordinating Artificial Insemination schools for both undergraduate and graduate students and data collection and analysis.
