Calving Season Management

The Calving Season Management Elective provides an opportunity to expand knowledge and experience in all phases of calving management. ┬áThe program is structured around normal calving operations at the USMARC including night calving at the polesheds. ┬áThe GPVEC and USMARC veterinary staff will make an effort to involve students in veterinary activities that take place during this elective including the diagnosis, treatment, and management of many commonly encountered conditions in the dam and calf. However, participation in a Caesarian section is not guaranteed.

Students will need to bring:

  • Two pairs of coveralls
  • Overshoes or Rubber Boots
  • Student ID / Badge

The Calving Season Management Elective begins Monday at 8 a.m. unless students are notified otherwise.
