The National FFA Veterinary Science CDE is a competitive event that tests the participant\'s ability to apply veterinary science knowledge and skill in practical settings as well as identify breeds, parasites and equipment. Participants also complete a written exam and respond to scenario questions about current topics in the veterinary industry. Teams present to a panel of judges about the roles and responsibilities of the veterinary team in a variety of situations involving patients from companion animal to large animal. Teams competed at local and state levels for the privilege of representing their state at the National FFA Convention & Expo.

This event, held at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Ky., is one of many educational activities at the national convention in which FFA members apply classroom knowledge to real-life situations.
