Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine’s Production Animal Medicine Society is seeking funds to compete in the 2020 Bovine Palpation Competition. The event will be held during the Student American Veterinary Medical Association Symposium on March 14 - 16, 2020, at the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine located in Ithaca, New York.

Six team members began preparing in October working with clinicians, professors and alumni. Weekly meetings, study sessions and palpation labs hosted by the OSU Dairy, CVM Ranch and various area stockyards help the team hone their skills. Attending the symposium allows veterinary students to broaden their horizons regarding bovine medicine, master numerous clinical skills and represent the OSU College of Veterinary Medicine on a national level.

Each year the palpation team relies on funds from SAVMA, the Production Animal Medicine Society (American Association of Bovine Practitioners, American Association of Small Ruminant Practitioners, American Association of Swine Veterinarians) and alumni. With the 2020 competition being held in New York, the team is seeking donations once again.

“Thank you to everyone who has supported us in the past and to those who will give generously this year,” said Dalton Newell, Production Animal Medicine Society president, Zuku student representative, Zoetis student representative and class of 2021. “We hope you know that your commitment to our goals and success as veterinary students does not go unnoticed and means more than you know to the students and faculty here at OSU CVM.”

If you would like to sponsor the OSU CVM Palpation Team or make a donation toward travel or lodging expenses, please contact Sharon Worrell, alumni affairs and event specialist, at or 405-744-5630.
