Jason Ricka  BScAg, DVM

Raised on a dairy farm in Chilliwack, Jason received his Bachelor of Science in Agriculture at the University of British Columbia in 1999 and his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Saskatchewan in 2003. After three years spent honing his skills at a progressive dairy practice in Embrun, Ontario, Jason returned home to join Greenbelt Veterinary Services in 2006.

He is still actively involved with the family farm, Brooknook Holsteins, run by his brother Mark and his father John. Jason’s love of farming and the Holstein breed translates well into his everyday work as a veterinarian. His wife Carli is also in veterinary practice at the Sardis Animal Hospital in Chilliwack.

They have 4 beautiful children: Isaac, Desmond and a set of twins, Alistair and Juliet, who keep Jason running when he’s not busy at work or on the farm.
