About our presenters:
Dr. Scott Morey was raised in Tolland, CT. Growing up he enjoyed working on a dairy farm in his hometown and showing beef cattle in 4-H. This led him to pursue a degree in animal science from the University of Connecticut, graduating in 2006. He then attended veterinary school at Kansas State University and graduated with honors. While attending veterinary school he also pursued a Masters degree in animal science, specializing in dairy cattle nutrition, graduating with a 4.0 GPA. Following graduation he practiced at a progressive, busy, mixed-animal practice in north central Kansas. There he was able to practice high quality medicine and surgery in all species. In 2014 Dr. Morey moved back to Connecticut and began providing on-farm veterinary services before opening Fenton River Veterinary Hospital in his hometown with his wife, Dr. Heidi Morey. Dr. Morey specializes in large animals, providing on-farm routine exams and vaccinations, lameness exams, reproductive services, surgeries and many other services. Dr. Morey is trained in equine reproduction, bovine embryo transfer, cattle nutrition and emergency medicine. He also provides on-farm digital radiology and ultrasound. When not busy with practice, Dr. Morey enjoys spending time with his wife, daughter Ashlynn and son Jackson. He also enjoys training for Ironman triathlons and working with his own cattle.
Dr. Marty Adams is the equine nutritionist and horse feed manager for Southern States. He is also the equine nutrition research team member of Cooperative Research Farms for (CRF) for Southern States and has served for 5 years as project leader of this organization.
