Why is this Farm Animal Graduate Programme so important?
The Farm Animal Graduate Development Programme has been designed
to build on the knowledge and skills learnt at university and provide
recent graduates with the necessary support to allow them to develop as
farm animal clinicians. The diversity of the programme modules reflects
modern farm animal practice and the aim is to produce farm animal
veterinary surgeons with the knowledge, skills and ability to deal with
individual animals, routine fertility visits and herd/flock health problems
in an evidence based way.
