Dr. Trey Cook comes to us from North Carolina, where he recently graduated from
veterinary school at North Carolina State University. He was born in Concord, a small town outside Charlotte, but lived in various parts of the state while growing up. As early as 7 years old, he was saying he wanted to become a veterinarian, and after graduating from East Carolina University in 2017 with a B.S. in biochemistry, that childhood dream finally started to be realized.
While in veterinary school, experience on the school dairy, influence from a few key professors, and a mission trip to a small dairy outside of Nairobi, Kenya cemented his passion for dairy cows, the dairy industry and its producers. He also gained a great appreciation for the powerful impact that food-producing operations have both in America and throughout the world. During his time at NCSU, Trey dove into as many dairy and food animal opportunities as he could find, and grew to love the medical, economical, food safety and relational aspects of dairy medicine. He is excited and enthusiastic to do his part in helping producers maximize the efficiency of their operations to the benefit of farming families and consumers alike.
When not on the dairy or at the office, you can probably find him hiking in the mountains and enjoying California’s legendary national parks, trying to set up a game of sand volleyball, or barbecuing with friends.
