In the stable “De Ark”, we provide practical education to the bachelor student in Veterinary Sciences. Especially courses on animal handling and husbandry are important. During the “Partus Project” students learn to follow up the anatomical, physiological and clinical changes in pregnant beef cows around the moment of calving. After calving, also the care for the new born calf is important for the students. De Ark is also used to provide veterinary clinical services.
