Ceva Animal Health has donated a cattle ultrasound scanner to the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) as part of its “reprodAction” Young Vet Initiative.
A vital piece of equipment for managing cattle fertility, the ultrasound unit will be used by students in the department of production and population health, which is responsible for the RVC’s teaching and research activities in farm animal medicine, animal welfare, epidemiology, economics and veterinary public health.
Department head John Fishwick said: “We are extremely grateful to Ceva for very generously proving this ultrasound scanner. It will be used for training our final year tracking students based at our regional veterinary centre in Dorset. These are students who have chosen to spend some of their final year specialising in production animal work.”
Ceva Animal Health’s reprodAction Young Vet Initiative was set up in September 2014 to help those new to dairy medicine further their knowledge in cattle reproduction. As well as donating vital equipment, the scheme also provides high quality cattle fertility CPD courses and specific farm animal reproductive medicine student elective sponsorship.
