ISU Veterinary Field Services

The Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine now offers farm animal (food and fiber) Veterinary Field Services to producers in the Ames area.  Three fully-equipped mobile veterinary trucks and eight clinicians will provide individual animal and herd health services for beef, dairy, swine, sheep, goats, and camelids (alpacas and llamas).

The field services unit was initiated to accommodate the high-interest in farm animal medicine among our veterinary students and to provide veterinary service to local producers.  The service will provide students with additional training in best practices for management of a wide variety of clinical cases and provide high-quality, on-farm services for livestock producers in the Ames area.

For more information or to schedule a visit:

Call ISU Veterinary Field Services at (515) 294-7595.
