Central Carolina Community College (CCCC) will outfit its new, state-of-the-art, 3,690 square-foot large animal facility with equipment to support training of Veterinary Medical Technology students on common domestic large animal species. Students will learn basic husbandry and handling of large animal species, while simultaneously understanding the importance of pasture management and the nutritional requirements of livestock species. Completion of the facility will facilitate training of approximately 105 students per year with an estimated 83% of new full time students receiving credentials within 3 years. These students will help address the dire need for large-animal veterinary services in rural areas.
