VTMED 6548 - Dairy Production Medicine

Fall. 2 credits. S-U grades only.

Enrollment limited to: third- and fourth-year veterinary students. Minimum enrollment 6; maximum 18.

C. Guard.

Intermediate course in techniques and procedures used by veterinarians in modern dairy practice. Many of these activities fall outside the traditional boundaries of medicine, surgery, and theriogenology and might include housing, facilities, manure management, and employee education. Data analysis, disease and productivity monitoring, and evaluation of deviations from targeted performance are used to plan cost-effective interventions or corrections, followed by continued surveillance to monitor their effect. Students are introduced to the dominant software currently used in dairy management. Local dairy herds serve as additional laboratories for class projects.
