In an effort to support the livestock infrastructure in Ethiopia, a U.S. Army task force conducted a weeklong continuing education seminar in that country, providing knowledge, skills, supplies and labor to local animal health workers. In one day, some 600 animals were examined and vaccinated at no cost to local farmers. "Supporting the training of the animal health assistants and increasing their skill and knowledge will continue to advance the veterinary infrastructure in the country, and through them our efforts can be perpetuated into the future," said veterinarian and officer-in-charge Capt. Heather Stone.
