The 2023 Winner in Veterinary Science is Brooke Casey of the New London FFA. This proficiency is sponsored by the Wisconsin FFA Convention Partners.
In 2019, Brooke started as a kennel attendant at Wolf River Veterinary Clinic. In 2021, Brooke was promoted to being a veterinary assistant. Brooke’s responsibilities with this role include working with veterinarians to conduct examinations and providing medication to dental and surgery patients before procedures. Furthermore, Brooke assists in drawing blood, giving vaccines, taking radiographs, conducting ultrasounds, and much more. In addition to all of this, Brooke shadows a large animal veterinarian at United Veterinary Clinic to continue to develop her knowledge in the field.
Brooke’s advisor is Crystal Retzlaff.
