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.

I’m blessed to have grown up on our family farm in Clark County. It taught me the benefits of hard work as I learned through hands-on activities that took place every day. I discovered how to grow crops, care for animals, and to be a good steward of the land. It was a classroom like no other and my parents set an example that I carry with me daily.
