This is a fantastic opportunity for animal science and pre-veterinary students to study animal health and disease and to learn about animal husbandry in the Mediterranean during the summer.
You will visit piggeries, hatcheries, goat and dairy farms, veterinary clinics, and one of the Most Advanced Biogas Units in the European Union, which makes for a fascinating comparative study of facilities, practices and perspectives in the Mediterranean around animal care!
