2014 Group Process Questions

  • Intermediates: You have decided to start a breeding swine herd, and in the interest of being a good herd manager you talk to your vet prior to purchasing animals to establish a vaccination program. What vaccines will you use? Include a detailed plan outlining vaccination methods and techniques for each vaccine you will use.
  • Seniors:  You notice that your sheep is having a respiratory problem. Your neighbor is very knowledgeable about sheep, and you have gone to him in the past for advice. He tells you to give your sheep Draxxin. Will you give the drug? What considerations go into your decision, and what will be your next course of action?
