If you have ever wondered if you are making good decisions, if you are contemplating decisions that will affect your bottom line, or if you know that you need help gathering information to be able to make better decisions, then you would benefit from hiring a consultant.
How do you know which consultant to hire?
Most consultants offer a free consultation and / or evaluation but may require reimbursement of travel expenses, if necessary. This gives you an opportunity to do your own evaluation of whether the consultant can actually help you. If not, they may be able to refer you to the right person who can. You should provide the consultant with enough information that he or she will be able to help you set clear goals, benchmarks, and evaluation criteria. A good consultant will have a talent for problem solving, will put measures into place that can prevent the problem(s) from occurring again, and will implement follow-up and contingency plans.

2. Research & Experimental Design
Academic institutions, private companies, ET businesses, and even cattle producers all have science-based research questions. As an independent consultant, we can provide unique and valuable insight into forming the right hypothesis (to ask and answer the appropriate research questions), choosing the correct experimental design, selecting observation parameters & techniques, data collection & oversight, data & statistical analyses, and presentation of results & conclusions. Research is expensive, so it's best to get it right the first time.
3. Database Management Implementation / Software Development
Since 1988, Dr. Lindsey has worked with several different software programmers, developing software solutions for the ET industry. Applications include embryo & semen inventory, IVF embryo production, & conventional ET database management packages. He continues to serve as a Beta-tester for MOFA Global'sHerd Visionembryo database system and can help your integrate computer database systems into your own program.
4. Technology Feasibility Assessments
In this fast-paced, dynamic age of new innovations and technology advancements, it might be easy to be lured into adapting some new product or procedure without knowing the "rest of the story" or whether there's something better out there. It has been Brad's job for many years, working for his previous employers, to scan the horizon and select the best set of products and techniques available and then adapt them at the right time into a package that is feasible, both, financially and practically.
