Veterinary Diagnostic and Production Animal Medicine Department
The SMEC 478A module will give participants the opportunity to learn swine production management and consulting skills within a progressive swine production and management system. Time will be split approximately with half in-class discussion topics and half on-farm learning opportunities where students will visit a breeding farm, nursery facility, finishing facility, wean-to-finish facility, gilt developer unit, and a truck wash facility.
- Students must observe downtime requirements for farm visits and all other requirements per course syllabus.
Students will have direct and free access to our team of veterinarians for 100% of their stay (10 week days, in addition to the weekends before and after the course)
