Hey, I just finished my first year of vet school. I was thinking of spending six weeks or so next summer after finishing my second year in the west (I'm from NY). I'd love to get some food animal experience and volunteer/shadow cow vets. I'm particularly interested in going to California, Nevada, or Arizona... possibly Utah or New Mexico as well. Does anyone know of any food animal vets in those states? It's more difficult than I thought trying to find one. Thanks! :)

Also try the ARV http://www.ruralvets.com/

They have a list of vets who have offered to be mentors and host vet student externs during breaks. If you apply next spring through the externship program, you could even get a little funding for travel/board.
