JULY 14–27, 2019
Learn about the interconnection between wildlife biology and conservation, laboratory technology and diagnostics, animal science, and veterinary medicine. Every student will have hands-on experience on the farm, in wildlife environments, and in the laboratory. Activities will include field trips to several types of farms; lab exercises such as bacterial culture, egg candling and inoculations, animal necropsies (dissections), veterinary clinical procedures, and diagnostic testing; and field trips to conservation areas, zoological facilities, animal shelters, and research facilities. Students will participate in team-building activities and explore the local culture. Students who have completed a general biology or animal science course will benefit most from the program activities. Follow us on Facebook: AgDiscovery at ISU 2018.
