SCAABP - Student Chapter of the American Association of Bovine Practitioners

 

AABP Website

The KSU Chapter of the American Association of Bovine Practitioners is made up of veterinary students with a special interest in beef and dairy practice. The chapter boasts one of the largest memberships of the veterinary special interest groups. Many members have roots deep in beef or dairy production while others have had very limited exposure to cattle and want to increase their large animal experience in preparation for senior clinics. Regardless of background, all members enjoy the short monthly meeting where faculty from the veterinary college and animal science department, as well as local practitioners, present talks on various topics of interest. Once or twice each year demonstrations or wet labs are utilized to afford members "hands-on" training that may not be possible in the clinical curriculum. Barbecues and other social events round out the agenda of KSU-AABP activities. Chapter members also have the option to belong to the national organization and receive all publications and benefits entitled by its membership. KSU-AABP extends a sincere invitation to any student in the College of Veterinary Medicine with an interest in bovine practice to join our organization.
