Extraordinary KSU College of Veterinary Medicine Student Efforts
Starting in the fall of 2015, a small group of dedicated students from the class of 2017 have been spending time after class with the KSVDL advancing their education and perfecting their clinic skills. These students have spent after class time on Friday afternoon (18 sessions) rectal palpating cows to improve their pregnancy diagnosis skills. All have become very proficient at pregnancy diagnoses that include pregnancies of gestational lengths of less than 40 days to third trimester!
Many of the same students also spent their Monday evenings learning about practical cow-calf nutrition. In all, eight sessions were conducted, and students gained experience building and critiquing rations, formulating appropriate mineral supplements, using BRANDS™ nutrition software. They have the necessary skills to be able to provide nutritional services to their cow-calf clients upon graduation!
