Dr.JohnGrevingAt the Iowa Cattle Industry Leadership Summit held on December 15th, Dr. John Greving was awarded the 2022 Beef Quality Assurance Cow-Calf Award. As a long-time advocate for the beef industry and promoter of the BQA program, Dr. Greving has worked closely with ISU Beef Extension Specialist Erika Lundy to integrate yearly BQA sessions into annual customer meetings and helps producers obtain their BQA certification.

“Veterinarians play an integral role in providing animal health expertise to support on-farm efforts to produce nutritious and delicious beef,” shared Casey Anderson, Director of Industry Relations with IBIC. “He regularly practices the important tenets of the BQA program but the separation is in Dr. Greving’s soft skills.”

Dr. John Greving started at the AMVC Veterinary Services practice in Manning in 2017. For the past five years he has provided significant support to area cattle producers in a six-county radius in western Iowa.

One of Greving’s clients, Shayne Wiese, had this to share,“Dr. Greving is a standout when it comes to exercising patience and respect for the animal and farmer. It doesn’t matter if it’s 3 p.m. or 2 a.m. he always takes the time to do the job right. His bedside manner is what makes Dr. Greving excellent at what he does.” Additionally, “he’s extremely thorough in his work and isn’t afraid to deliver hard news in the name of being practical while keeping the farmer’s best interest in mind.”

Originally from Willey, Iowa, Dr. Greving has accrued a vast resume of experiences to which has been attributed to his diverse skill set today. As a 2013 graduate of Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine, his veterinary passion lies in production medicine with an emphasis in cow/calf, feedlot, and reproductive services. He served four years of service with the Marine Corps and a three-year stint with Pfizer Animal Health in the swine sector before spending three years at the DeWitt Vet Clinic in Eastern Iowa.
