Veterinarians to participate in the Farm Science Review, Sept. 17-19

Faculty veterinarians from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine will be on hand to answer questions during “Questions the Authorities,” and at a college exhibit at the 51st Annual Farm Science Review (FSR), held at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center (MCAC) near London, Ohio.

“Question the Authorities” offers a public question-and-answer session on a variety of farm-related and animal-oriented topics. Veterinarians will speak on a variety of topics from avoiding infectious diseases to the requirements for admission to the College of Veterinary Medicine.

“One of the most popular sessions last year was a discussion of the safety issues surrounding the consumption of raw milk,” said Dr. Jeff Workman, extension coordinator in the Department of Veterinary Preventive Medicine. “Dr. Paivi Rajala-Shultz will be on hand again this year to answer questions.” Other faculty participating in the “Question the Authorities,” along with their topics, include:
