They’re not Kidding Around! Vet Tech Students get hands-on Experience at Local Goat Farm

Globe University La Crosse students from the Vet Tech club SCNAVTA recently went on a field trip to help out at the Proksch/Hass Goat Farm in Genoa, WI.

While at the farm, students assisted by cleaning pens and prepping them for new baby goats, moving baby goats into pens, bottle feeding baby goats, as well as observing and assisting in the milking process.

“We do not house large animals on campus, so we are always trying to find ways to get our students more interaction with them,” said Amy Stinson, program chair for the vet tech program and SCNAVTA advisor. “Dr. Hass’s son and daughter in-law own the goat farm and it is a perfect opportunity for our students to get more hands on skills with goats as well as a behind the scenes look at how a goat milking farm operates.” Dr. Elayne Hass is a veterinary technology instructor at the La Crosse campus.
