The inaugural CVMA CE Ag Animal program was held on January 20, 2018 in Greeley. The focus for the program was on Bovine Medicine, with attendees learning about and performed liver biopsies and how to diagnose, trim and treat dairy and beef hoof abnormalities and disease. Small group attendance allowed for great interaction with the facilitators and plenty of time to perform the techniques.
