Gregg A. Hanzlicek
Assistant Professor


  • As director of Production Animal Field Investigations, I assist private practitioners in investigating complex herd health problems. During the investigation process I work with the pathologists and microbiologists within the veterinary diagnostic laboratory. Additionally, senior students in the pathology rotation at the time of the investigation are involved in the planning, site-visit and subsequent write-up of our investigations. I also travel extensively throughout the state of Kansas presenting timely bovine health topics to veterinary practitioners and their clients. I frequently speak at regional and national veterinary and producer meetings on topics including research results, bovine health management and diagnostic strategies. I also serve on professional committees and task forces. Additionally, I am the editor of the bi-monthly Kansas State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory newsletter, Diagnostic Insights which targets present diagnostic laboratory clients and KSU-CVM alumni.


  • I am course coordinator and primary instructor for Cow-Calf Health Systems (CS 611). This course educates students on the prevention, recognition and intervention of common health concerns observed on cow-calf operations. I also am a guest lecturer on dairy cattle health in Principles in Animal Disease Control (AS 540) offered through the Department of Animal Science and Industry. Additionally, I was elected as an advisor to the Kansas State University Student Chapter of the American Association of Bovine Practitioners.


  • My research interests include disease surveillance and monitoring systems for beef and dairy health programs and disease surveys.
