ROBERT C. FRY, DVM After graduating from the University of Georgia, College of Veterinary Medicine in 1977, Dr. Fry began a bovine veterinary practice on the Delmarva Peninsula. His career interest has always centered on production and health issues of dairy cows. In 1994, after many years of working in traditional dairy operations, he was convinced that a healthy alternative was to manage and feed cows with the principles of Managed Intensive Grazing. To that extent Dr. Fry has become a partner in a grazing, seasonal breeding Jersey herd in Kennedyville, Maryland. He continues to practice veterinary medicine and provides nutritional consulting services to dairy herds in the Northeast US.
