"You be the vet"

"You be the vet" is the title of a new online quiz, designed to test (and improve) the user's knowledge of treatments for disease conditions which commonly affect sheep and goats.

It's important to note that some of the treatments advocated in the quiz require extra label drug use and consultation with a licensed veterinarian.

There will be a "You be the vet" station at both of the small ruminant skillathons this year.  The Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival will host the Junior Sheep & Wool Skillathon on Sunday, May 8 at the Howard County Fairgrounds.

The Junior Goat Skillathon will be held on Saturday, September 24, in conjunction with the annual Western Maryland Goat Field Day & Sale at the Washington County Ag Center near Boonsboro, MD.

While developed as study resources for youth competing in animal science skillathons, the online quizzes are useful to anyone who wants to "test" and improve their knowledge of sheep and goat production.
