Photo Friday: On The Business End

This is the last day of classes! Barring two final exams at the end of next week, I have survived my first semester of graduate school! But in classic fashion, as soon as there is something to celebrate, something else goes wrong…

I walked into the office at 7 this morning to get some work done before everyone else got here. I have a 20-minute presentation due today, so when I went to do a final check before submission, I found that the audio recording did not save. Only static. *Beats head on desk, Palm to face*

A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.

On the bright side, I really enjoyed some work away from the desk yesterday. I joined a few of my fellow repro phys graduate students to flush embryos from cows. Then we transferred these fresh embryos to recipient cows and froze the extras. After I finish with classes, I have a series put together to explain many of the reproduction management techniques we use with cattle. So feel free to ask your questions in the comments below so I can be sure to answer them in later posts. For now here’s a few shots from my day (Thanks to Jessy for the photos!)

And really, how can ya beat this office view?

Now back to the grind…



  1. Yikes, sorry to hear about the presentation audio. On the positive side, you get to tell people that you flush embryos for a living. That’ll start a conversation.
