About ASCI 134 BU1

The summer program is based on the University of Vermont's College of Agriculture and Life Science's CREAM Program (Cooperative for Real Education in Agricultural Management), which has been helping students gain hands-on large animal experience for over 25 years. This one-of-a-kind program has helped distinguish its alumni from many other applicants seeking admission to veterinary school. The work-based learning experience gives a select group of 15 students the opportunity to manage a herd of 60 registered Holstein cattle for the duration of the summer. Through lab and farm work, students will learn about a broad range of topics related to animal well-being such as animal nutrition, parasitology, anatomy/physiology, immunology, genetics, and diagnosing and treating common illnesses.
