The Moberly Area Community College Veterinary Technology Program received a $ 2,000 grant from the MFA Oil Foundation for its barn building project.
The MACC Veterinary Technology Program will use the funds to build a new barn on the MACC-Mexico campus. This will allow students to gain experience in providing veterinary care to live animals of a variety of species.
âThe MACC Veterinary Technology program would like to express its sincere gratitude to the MFA Oil Foundation for their generosity. These funds will be used for our barn project, which includes a bread shed and corral space that will be built on our campus in Mexico. This space will be used to teach production animal nursing techniques to veterinary technology students, âsaid Stephanie Gilliam, director of the veterinary technology program at MACC. âThis space will allow us to teach handling and nursing techniques with live animals, which is essential for the training of veterinary technicians.
Additional funds are still needed to complete the renovation of the veterinary technology space on the MACC-Mexico campus. The 2-year Associate of Applied Science in Veterinary Technology program will see its first courses start in fall 2021. The degree program will prepare students to provide the highest quality health care to a variety of species. animal.
