About ASCI 1990 Z1

High school students interested in animal care, veterinary medicine, and local agricultural systems will be challenged to use their high school instruction in real-world animal systems right in our backyards. This course will provide students with the opportunity to integrate classroom instruction, hands-on learning and farm tours to more thoroughly understand how biology, veterinary medicine, animal behavior, and livestock management intersect. Students will have the opportunity to perform physical exams on Holstein cows and calves, and participate in milking and caring for the herd. They will also learn about nutrition, animal handling, vaccines, reproduction programs, animal health management, technology in livestock systems, lameness, calving management, and baby calf care. We will tour several area livestock operations to observe a diverse spectrum of management systems. During the second week, students will work independently on individual projects at home with final presentations on the last day.
