New London FFA Wins State Veterinary Science Career Development Event

June 8, 2022 CDE

MADISON, Wis. – The New London FFA Chapter was named the state winning Veterinary Science Career Development Event Team. Team members include Rachel Weyland, Brooke Casey, Jake Flocker and Claire Duch. Their advisor is Crystal Retzlaff. Additionally, the top individual was Rachel Weyland.

The objective of the Veterinary Science CDE is for FFA members to showcase their understanding of veterinary science procedures. In the Veterinary Science Career Development Event, students working in teams demonstrate their technical competency with small and large animals by completing a written exam, critical-thinking scenario questions, identifications and hands-on practicums. 

New London will now represent Wisconsin FFA in competition at the National FFA Career Development Events to be held in October in Indianapolis, Indiana during the 95th National FFA Convention. The Veterinary Science CDE is sponsored on the state level by the Wisconsin FFA Foundation Annual Fund. The National sponsor is Zoetis and U.S. Poultry & Egg Association.

 All Career Development Events engage students in developing their communication, decision-making and teamwork skills to promote future career success.
