Dr. J. D. Carroll Animal Husbandry Award

Navarro County Youth Exposition

 Dr. James D. Carroll also know to his friends and colleagues as Dr. J.D. practiced as a large animal veterinarian with his classmate Dr. John Harper and his brother, Dr. Ray Dean Carroll for 56 years before retiring at the age of 84 in 2008.  He served as an auction barn veterinarian for 50 years.  He was the first veterinarian to initiate aging and pregnancy testing at the sale barn, a practice that swept through the cattle industry and revolutionized the cattle auction process forever.

Dr. J. D. loved his profession more than anything in the world.  Deriving much personal enjoyment and fulfillment from assisting and teaching clients about how to care for and treat their animal, he found that some of his greatest joy was working with youth that was involved with 4-H or FFA.  He often gave his time, knowledge and expertise and care to the youth that would show their livestock for projects and shows.
