Food Animal Club Outreach Committee

Mission Statement

  • To address the need for mixed and food animal veterinarians in Ohio
  • To recruit, guide, and mentor students towards pursuing a career in veterinary medicine with emphasis on agriculture and animal production
  • To inform youth of the rewards in pursuing a career in mixed animal veterinary medicine through positive exposure to mentors with whom they can relate
  • To inspire local youth to remain in their home state by exposing them to career opportunities that will allow them to be financially and professionally successful with the need to migrate to urban areas.

"Not only is the demand rising, our nation is in a critical shortage of veterinarians working to protect our food supply."
