NCSU Vet School Holding Benefit Stallion Service Auction

The NCSU College of Veterinary Medicine is pleased to announce the third annual Stallion Service Auction. All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Student Chapter of the Society for Theriogenology and Student Chapter of the American Association of Equine Practitioners. The Stallion Service Auction will be held through Jan. 31, 2008.

The breedings will be auctioned online via silent, e-mail bid from the Web site: www.NCSUStallionAuction.com. Donations are tax-exempt and the winning bidder for each breeding will be responsible for any booking fees and/or shipping costs. Bidders will agree to abide by all terms of the stallion owner's breeding contract. All stallion owners will be notified at the close of bidding regarding the winning bidder and their contact information.

The Student Chapter of the Society for Theriogenology (SCSFT) will benefit from the Stallion Service Auction. The Society for Theriogenology is dedicated to furthering advances in the science and practice of animal reproduction. The student chapter is beginning its third year at the College of Veterinary Medicine and is dedicated to providing education on the subject of reproduction. The SCSFT hopes to expose students to the variety of reproductive techniques currently available to horse breeders, and give the students the chance to learn and practice these procedures.

The NCSU Student Chapter of the American Association of Equine Practitioners (SCAAEP) will also receive a portion of the profits from the Stallion Service Auction. This student group is one of the prominent sources of education and hands-on experience for the equine-oriented veterinary student. In order for students to gain additional equine experiences, participation in SCAAEP provides a source of the essential skills and mentoring needed to become an equine veterinarian. SCAAEP provides speakers, wetlabs, weekend seminars, and conference trips to your future equine veterinarians, ensuring that client horses will continue to receive high-quality, competent, and compassionate veterinary care from the next generation of CVM graduates.
