Dear Sir,
Possessing a progressive career track record of nearing twenty years from the year 2001 in the GCC countries with intensive dairy farm/clinical and surgical large animal experience, my career objective is to be a part of any organization/farm that upkeeps the global standard of animal health that in turn contributes to the public health of the community.

Thorough strength in leading a dairy veterinary team for best results in terms of controlling the calf hood diseases and up keeping the herd health and breeding with diligent implementation and follow up.
Specially developed skills to teach, train and implement farm standard operation protocols to the farm employees- Knowledge transferable skills.
Nearing two decades of intense clinical experience both in farm management of dairy cattle and in farm with multiple species of livestock/ungulates with an added advantage of work experience in an academic institution / research experience. (Sultan Qaboos University-SQU- Muscat).

For example, performed a case of adult bovine rumen fistulation at SQU on February 2019 (Rumen cannulation on a Holstein cattle and successfully maintaining the cannula in place for a period of nearly 14 months and continuing in situ for a research project). Rumen cannulated cows can serve as donor of rumen fluid/transfaunation, this can be a big support in treating the sick cows.
