Dr. Claire Ainsworth of the Mayerthorpe Veterinarian Clinic demonstrates aspects of calf delivery using the UFA’s bovine simulator which enables people to gain practical experience without causing discomfort or injury to a live animal. The veterinarian was addressing about 50 local cattle producers at UFA Cattle College, a one-day educational seminar held at Mayerthorpe’s Diamond Centre on Tuesday, Jan 22.

Pictured here is the University of Calgary Faculty of Veterinary Medicine's clinical skills building.

The staff of the CSB facilty will be providing a tour of their facility to the crew of fabricators of VSI.

This has been arranged to so that the crew can see firsthand the items that they create in use at a school and perhaps get some feedback from the practitioners and/or students.

These photos show our Hereford model dystocia simulator and calf model painted as a "Pied Simmental" for a client in Germany, Landwirtschaftliches Zentrum Baden-W├╝rttemberg - Milchwirtschaft Wangen
 The two calves for this customer were also colored to represent a "Pied Simmental"

All items will be crated today and shipped to Germany later in the week.
