About the Program

Oklahoma has 1.6 million beef cows, yet many areas lack the veterinarians necessary to service the cattle operations, which reduces opportunities for rural prosperity and economic development. The shortage will likely increase as veterinarians retire and producer needs change. To counteract the problem, Oklahoma State University seeks to offer intervention strategies for rural sustainability by expanding veterinary skills and knowledge of herd health, food nutrition, forage management, reproductive management, and other common needs of beef producers.
