The Tufts Farm is an integral unit of the Cummings Animal Resources unit. We maintain teaching and production herds of many common agricultural species, including dairy heifers, beef cattle, sheep, poultry and swine. We provide an opportunity for hands-on instruction and skill development to students in the professional DVM curriculum and many outside students.
The Livestock Production Specialist is a vital member of the integrated team responsible for the care and feeding of our cattle, sheep, pigs and chickens and assist with field crop production. The team works closely with the Cummings faculty to train veterinary and other students in safe and humane handling and restraint and clinical procedures. We support a growing and sophisticated research program.
