Photo Gallery: Visit to Sheboygan

Mark Markel, Dean of the UW–Madison School of Veterinary Medicine along with Crystal Potts, Director of UW–Madison State Relations visited the Plymouth/Sheboygan area to connect firsthand with businesses and farms working with UW–Madison, and to learn more about the needs of the community. The group was joined by other faculty and staff from UW–Madison Vet Med as well as Representative Terry Katsma, Senator Duey Stroebel, and Representative Tyler Vorpagel.

The trip showcased the UW–Madison School of Veterinary Medicine’s connections to the local community, particularly in the dairy and food production industries. Leaders in these industries also informed the UW–Madison team about the challenges and opportunities they are facing. This trip reinforces UW–Madison’s proud tradition of ensuring that the impact of the campus is extended to every community in the state.
