Jim Hoffmann was introduced to 4-H along with his brothers and sisters as a member of the Layton Livewires 4-H Club in Walnut. Jim’s parents believed in the 4-H program and encouraged their children to participate in the many 4-H activities that were offered to members in East Pottawattamie County during the 1960’s and early 70’s. Jim’s interest was in his livestock projects, especially market beef. This love of livestock led him to Iowa State University where he studied Animal Science and applied and was accepted into the ISU Veterinary School. Following graduation he spent some time as a Federal meat inspector and then became a partner in an Avoca veterinary practice. Through the years Dr. Hoffmann served many livestock producers in Pottawattamie County and the surrounding area and has done his share in caring for many small animals for his clients.
