Prize will help vet education

Thank you for your support of the Food Animal and Reproduction Medicine Club at UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. We appreciate your help to promote our entry in the BCF University Competition. We were able to generate about 2,000 votes for the FARM Club “COW-lifornia Girls” video, out of a total of 6,000 votes for the eight university entries.

We were honored by the community that came together to support UC Davis veterinary students.

We are proud to say we have won the competition, and therefore a new handheld digital ultrasound machine. We plan on using it during FARM Club wet labs, which take place on the weekends or after school. We already have a trip set up to go to the UCD Dairy to conduct pregnancy checks on our dairy cattle, and are currently looking for more opportunities to use our new educational tool.

Ultrasound education is very important to veterinary students, and practice on this machine early in our veterinary education will allow our students to gain early exposure to ultrasonography and become proficient with ultrasound technology by their final year of vet school. These wet labs are essential to helping our students learn more about food animal medicine and preparing them for their careers.

The UCD FARM Club exists to provide extracurricular learning and networking opportunities for students interested in production medicine. We believe in providing utmost care for animals, while working to ensure a healthy, wholesome and safe food supply to benefit the world.

We have the unique responsibility to bring sound scientific evidence to our future clients and to educate the consuming public about the food they eat. This mission begins in school and continues throughout our careers as food animal practitioners. In order to achieve this mission, we need support from community organizations. We appreciate the continued support from organizations like yours in helping our club become a stronger part of the local community, as well as relating us to the public and supporting veterinary medicine.

Again, we cannot thank you enough for your support of the FARM Club at UC Davis.

Christy Copeland and Rachael Lyons, FARM Club presidents-elect; Michelle Sanborn, publicity commissioner; and Anita Varga, D.V.M., faculty adviser
