We host an annual Advanced Beef Production Medicine rotation at VAHS. The primary objective of this rotation is to provide 4th year veterinary students with the knowledgebase, skill-set, and resources necessary for a successful career as a cow-calf and feedlot practitioner. Various segments of this rotation are specifically designed to address weaknesses commonly identified by new graduates and their employers (i.e. inability to conduct risk assessments and formulate customized preconditioning or vaccination protocols, assist with genetic evaluation and selection of sires that complement environmental challenges or marketing opportunities, etc.). Learning modules will be accomplished via wet labs, tours, lectures, investigations and group discussions. Daily activities will aid in fine-tuning skills necessitated by beef cattle practice and provide the students with an understanding of common needs of clients, key aspects of preventive medicine, and steps necessary to transition to a consulting-based relationship. The students will have the opportunity to learn from various veterinarians and other professionals who are experts in preventive medicine, nutrition, management-intensive grazing, marketing, cattle selection, risk management, etc. This rotation is best suited for students with a keen interest in cow-calf and/or feedlot production medicine and consulting or those wishing to develop advanced beef cattle production medicine skills in order to provide a high level of service to their beef cattle clients within a mixed-animal practice setting.
