Rachanne Lomkin, DMV, U.S. Department of Agriculture Aphis, VET,
Dr. Richanne Lomkin grew up on a small farm in rural Colorado that was just big enough to keep everyone busy. She graduated from the CSU Professional Veterinary Medicine program and then went to Albuquerque, NM for an internship with USDA, Animal Plant Health Inspection Service, Veterinary Services. After spending a year basking in the wonderful weather of New Mexico and 6 years slowly freezing to death in Eastern Idaho, she returned to Colorado as the field Veterinary Medical Officer for Northeastern Colorado. Dr. Lomkin thoroughly enjoys the opportunity to work with the local veterinarians, ranchers and farmers.
Narciso Perez, Chief Cattle Feeding Operations, General Consultant, Zia Agricultural Consulting
The youngest child of a shepherd’s family, Narciso (AKA “Narci”) has always felt obligated to run faster and work harder than anyone he knows to make a splash. As soon as he could walk, Narciso was nominated to start opening gates on the ranch, and the ranch is where is heart has always been. That wasn’t where his mind stayed, however. After attending New Mexico Military Institute, Narciso attended New Mexico State University where in-between working long hours and trying to squeeze blood from a stone (also known as “feeding cattle”) he earned a Bachelors degree in Animal Science. Since then, he’s fed cattle all over the state, country, and world. His experiences have taught him things about markets that classrooms could never even hope to. Narciso’s goal now is to ensure other people can learn from the mistakes he has made along the way.
