Bryan Pfahl and Russ Gray of VSI Ltd. attended the 2015 Therio Conference in San Antonio, Texas.
VSI donated an equine theriogenology model to the Theriogenology Foundation silent auction.
Proceeds from the auction go to benefit students, residents, student chapters and others, with travel grants, research projects and outreach.
For the vendor area we brought along our equine theriogenology model along with our latest prototype bovine theriogenology model.
With input from the conference attendees we were able to identify several areas that could be improved upon in terms of realistic feel and anatomic accuracy.
We will try to implement most of the suggestions for modifications before we travel to the INVEST conference in Hanover , Germany.
To all attendees who provided feedback,
