About Southeast Animal Labs

The owner, Leslie Simmons, was born and raised in Rydal, Georgia.  After graduating from Cartersville High School, she left home for Georgia Tech. She graduated in 1995 with a Bachelors in Chemistry.  She worked for a pharmaceutical company and for a hazardous waste disposal company.  In 2000, Leslie graduated with a JD from Georgia State.  That same year she married Robby Simmons.  Leslie and Robby now lease her family’s farm in Rydal.  Robby runs a background operation and a cow/calf operation.  Robby discovered the necessity to BVD-PI test through his work as a backgrounder.  With her Chemistry degree and lab experience, it was a natural fit for Leslie to begin testing BVD-PI samples and Southeast Animal Labs Information was born.

Leslie began testing BVD-PI samples for the public in September of 2009 using the IDEXX BVD-PI ELISA test.  Not long after, Leslie expanded to offer a blood based pregnancy test for cattle.  It is this pregnancy test that is most requested by customers.  Because of her interest in animal reproductive health, Leslie began offering other tests to customers to ensure cattlemen can maintain the most cost effective and efficient operation.
