Learning why an animal died is a good first step to preventing future losses. This class will review what the veterinarian is looking for and when it is an appropriate time to conduct the evaluation. The most valuable animal on your property is the one that just died, because there is much to learn from a necropsy.
Dr. Deanna Fuller, a veterinarian with Countryside Veterinary Clinic in Lowville will lead this workshop. Discussion will cover when it is appropriate to do a necropsy, your safety when doing a necropsy, and techniques and evaluation.
There is no cost to attend. Space is limited to the first 20 people. Contact Ron Kuck, dairy livestock educator with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Jefferson County (315-704-8810, firstname.lastname@example.org) to register.
The event is sponsored by CCE of Jefferson and Lewis counties; New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets; and the Southern Tier Stocker Cattle Initiative.
