Document Type



Before getting into the detail of the subject to be discussed, it is important to make clear to the reader the attitude and relationship of the writer to the farm on which he had his experience. In the first place he states he is definitely not a scientist nor a particularly good student of Veterinary Science. He attended Oregon State College 2 years studying animal husbandry, then Cornell University 4 years where he received a veterinary degree as well as some animal husbandry courses sandwiched in. The farm is owned by a corporation in which he has a small interest, thus giving him somewhat an attitude of a part owner. His capacity is that of manager and a board member responsible only to the president and board of directors of the corporation.
