Dr. Kenny Deutz is a new veterinarian at the New Ulm Regional Veterinary Center and the Willkommen Committee of the New Ulm Area Chamber of Commerce stopped by to welcome him. Deutz is a Marshall native where he grew up on a dairy and beef cattle farm.  He graduated from the U of M in May and began working in New Ulm in June.  Deutz, who specializes in large animal, chose to work in New Ulm because he says the NURVC has four experienced veterinarians that he would be able to work with and learn from, and he was looking for a rural community with a lot of dairy in the area.
