The Dublin Branch of FAVS was established in 2016. An enthusiastic group of committee members have organised clinical talks for the academic year, with a variety of speakers from practice, industry and academia presenting on topics like parasitology, surgeries in the field, and herd/flock health. Along with multiple practical and tours organised also throughout the year.
UCD FAVS was privileged to have played a part at the World Buiatrics Congress, with a FAVS table and many of the committee members volunteering as stewards. The FAVS table attracted great attention from international and domestic attendees alike, and it was an unparalleled opportunity for FAVS members to pick the brains, and network with experienced farm animal vets. The Congress was a huge success with delegates from all over the world attending and it was definitely a motivating and inspirational week for any budding Farm Animal Clinicians.
More updates to follow, we hope to make this an interesting, fun and special year for UCD FAVS!
