About ASCI 134 BU1

The summer program is based on the University of Vermont's College of Agriculture and Life Science's CREAM Program (Cooperative for Real Education in Agricultural Management), which has been helping students gain hands-on large animal experience for over 25 years. This one-of-a-kind program has helped distinguish its alumni from many other applicants seeking admission to veterinary school. The work-based learning experience gives a select group of 15 students the opportunity to manage a herd of 60 registered Holstein and Jersey cattle for the duration of the summer. Through lab and farm work, students will learn about a broad range of topics related to animal well-being such as animal nutrition, parasitology, anatomy/physiology, immunology, genetics, and diagnosing and treating common illnesses.

More Information

Section Description

CREAM is a student run dairy enterprise. Students get to perform all the tasks that would be performed on a normal dairy farm with the added benefit of a University grade education in areas such as nutrition and animal breeding. CREAM gives student hands on experience with large animals and encourages lifelong learning and team building skills. Objectives: 1. Introduce and discuss the current practices in dairy farm management and apply that knowledge to the management of the CREAM herd. 2. Familiarize students with how to manage and operate a business. 3. Provide students the opportunity to gain leadership, communication, problem solving and time management skills that will give them an advantage in their careers and make them more valuable to future employers.
