Meet Asher Mace, the Recipient Herdsman Intern working at the Iowa Corporate Headquarters location. Originally from Brazil, Indiana, Asher attended Black Hawk East College and then continued his education at Oklahoma State University where he recently graduated with his bachelor’s degree in Animal Science, Livestock Merchandising.

As the recipient herdsman intern, Asher will be working with the recipient herd at our Sioux Center, IA location. His position also includes assisting with sorting cattle, processing new cattle, heat checking and pregnancy checks.

“Spending numerous hours throughout my college career traveling the country working with cattlemen either at shows fitting cattle or helping to manage herds on the ranch has really grown my love for cattle and reproduction advancement. Being around cattle is second nature to me so when the opportunity presented itself, to be in a new state for a few months, I figured why not spend the summer doing what I love and meeting new people and making new connections. Trans Ova is second to none and I am excited for all that I will learn from them this summer. I know the knowledge I will gain will carry on with me throughout my future career. ”
