Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
The principles of medical disorders of ruminants are presented. This includes the cause of the disorders and the diagnostic, therapeutic and prophylactic measures necessary to correct, reduce or prevent these problems.

Course is scheduled for a reduction in credit hours (from 3 to 2) starting in the Spring of 2017.  We will eliminate the surgery component of the course (new elective being created in ruminant surgery). 


Course Title change reflects the new content focus, as does the catalog description.
