Jackson County Farm Bureau Hosts Veterinarian Clinic

 

Jackson County Farm Bureau and Veterinarian Joey Minter teamed up to offer Rabies and Parvo shots to small pets belonging to Farm Bureau members. Approximately 50 pets were vaccinated at a reduced cost to the member. The clinic, which was held in the parking lot at the Farm Bureau office in McKee, had a steady stream of customers and was a great success. Harry Wilson, Jackson County Farm Bureau President, said, “This clinic is beneficial to our members and we hope to be able to offer the program again.”
