The Hereford (Texas) Veterinary Clinic hosted the grand opening of its new Large Animal Veterinary Center and Instruction Center of Excellence in partnership with the Texas Tech University School of Veterinary Medicine, according to the Texas Cattle Feeders Association.

The state-of-the-art veterinary clinic and educational facility includes an equine clinic, bovine clinic and small animal clinic. The facility will provide resources and veterinary services in food-animal and production-animal medicine and will be the major clinical outlet for food-animal instruction for the students. Students will spend four-week blocks working on surgeries, medical cases and diagnostic skills.

The new facility also will allow faculty to conduct research activities.
