Jackson County Farm Bureau Veterinarian Clinic
Jackson County Farm Bureau Federation and Veterinarian Joey Minter teamed up to offer Rabies and Parvo shots to small pets belonging to Farm Bureau members. Approximately 70 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 throughout the morning. Jackson County High School FFA students were on hand to offer assistance with the animals. According to Jackson County Farm Bureau president, Harry Wilson, this clinic is a great success with more members taking part every year. Farm Bureau plans to join with Dr. Minter to offer this program on an annual basis.
