CDA names new assistant state veterinarian


Colorado Commissioner of Agriculture, John Stulp, has named Dr. Nick Striegel, of Fort Collins, assistant Colorado state veterinarian.

"We are very pleased to bring Dr. Striegel on as part of our veterinary team and believe that he will be a valuable asset to the livestock industries of Colorado," said Colorado State Veterinarian, Dr. Keith Roehr. "His career experience and skills will be a significant benefit to the Colorado Department of Agriculture's Division of Animal Industry."

Striegel, 54, is currently a veterinarian with the Colorado State University Extension in Boulder County. He also has extensive experience in livestock and small animal practices and is pursuing a Masters of Public Health from The University of Iowa.

"There are many challenges ahead for animal agriculture, the degree that I am pursuing is helping me be better prepared to work in the common arena where animal health and human health overlap," said Striegel. "It is also enhancing my knowledge and skills in the area of animal emergency management, zoonotic diseases, foreign animal diseases, and epidemiology."

The principal responsibility of the assistant state veterinarian is to provide support to the state veterinarian in controlling and preventing animal diseases and promoting a profitable agricultural economy. As assistant state veterinarian, Striegel will also oversee emergency animal health and veterinary response teams, participate in rulemaking processes, and provide assistance with animal care and welfare programs.

"I am excited about being able to be involved in the work of the Colorado Department of Agriculture," continued Striegel. "I look forward to working with livestock producers in the state and in the important task of protecting the health of animals."

Striegel's projected start date is June 15. For more on CDA's Division of Animal Industry, visit www.colorado.gov/ag/animals.
