UC Davis Deans Michael Lairmore and Helene Dillard Greet Students at World Ag Expo

The school highlighted its leadership role in agriculture and veterinary medicine to thousands of attendees at the 2016 World Ag Expo — the world’s largest annual agricultural exposition.

Representing UC Davis, the school’s Dean Michael Lairmore and College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences Dean Helene Dillard visited with prospective students, industry partners and exhibitors. During the three-day show in February, visitors to the school’s booth learned about the Veterinary Medicine Teaching and Research Center-Tulare’s important role in training veterinary students and residents in dairy production medicine, and in conducting research and services to solve problems related to dairy production medicine, food safety, cattle welfare and ecosystem health.

About 100,000 individuals from around the world attended the expo, held at the International Agri-Center in Tulare. Roughly 1,400 exhibitors showcased innovations and trends in farm equipment, and communications and technology on 2.6-million square feet of exhibit space.
