CENTERVILLE — Centerville FFA members attended the V-Smart (Veterinary Student Mixed Animal Recruitment) Vet Camp on Saturday, April 6 in Ames at the ISU Vet College.

The students took part in workshop activities such as giving CPR to a dog, ear notching pigs, disease pathology, splinting broken bones, and learning to preg check cows. Students also got the opportunity to tour the Vet College. Elizebeth Gaskins, Centerville FFA advisor, said, "It was a fun filled educational day where student reactions ranged from: 'Nasty' to 'Wow' and you just don't get experiences like that everyday in the classroom. These were priceless opportunities for true experiential learning."
