Lecturer and CREAM Advisor

Steve Wadsworth has been a dairy veterinary practitioner for nearly four decades in Franklin County. He is a lifelong Vermonter, UVM alumnus, graduate of Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine and son of a UVM Extension veterinarian. He was a founding partner in Northwest Veterinary Associates, Inc. in St. Albans, Vermont, a six veterinarian all-dairy practice. 

During his practice career, his interests included reproduction management, neonatal management, facility design, stockmanship and animal welfare. Dr. Wadsworth has strongly emphasized nurturing healthy relationships with farmers and their labor force and he continues that focus while teaching at UVM. He served on the board of directors of the American Association of Bovine Practitioners and was awarded the Quality Veterinarian of the Year. He is excited to share his decades of experience with students in the CREAM program and other courses, while bringing relevance to their learning.

Steve is married (wife, Sarah, is a vocational agriculture teacher and FFA advisor) and has two adult children. In addition to practice, his interests include biking, hiking, camping, snowshoeing, XC skiing, and reading. Steve is also active in the Enosburgh community, serving on the boards of the food shelf, recreation committee and Enosburgh Initiative.
