Some Texas 4-H students got the chance to see firsthand what it's like to be a veterinarian. Texas A & M partnered with 4-H to host its second annual Vet Science Camp. Twenty-five students spent three and a half days learning clinical skills they can use for a career path in animal health. Experts and staff members held demonstrations and campus tours for the campers.

Siera Tyl, a Michigan State University undergraduate student who helped with the camp said, “I think that a lot of students outside of this program don’t get the hands-on opportunity. They just see it in the books or videos. This program allows them to get up close and personal.”

To cite just one example of the practical value of the experience earned through program, the students received training in 33 of the 78 clinical skills required for CVA Certification and Beef Quality Assurance Certification from the Texas Beef Council.
