Murilo grew up on a dairy farm in Brazil, being the fourth generation of his family working in the dairy industry. His passion for cows led him to pursue a degree in Veterinary Medicine from the Lavras Federal University. After accumulating experience in Brazil and the US, he came to Guelph, where he proudly received a Masters Degree from the ABSc. Department in 2018. Since then, he’s been with Holstein Canada – first in the field as a Classifier for a year, and as an Education and Extension Specialist for the last year and a half.
We hope to see many of you there! Have a great week!
