We highly encourage veterinary student involvement in the field of poultry medicine and provide invaluable opportunities for members to gain professional knowledge of the opportunities and challenges that face poultry veterinarians.
Aggie Poultry Ambassadors
Beginning in the spring of 2005, the Poultry Science Department implemented a new undergraduate student program called the Aggie Leadership Council. The purpose of this group is to encourage leadership throughout the student body of the department as well as student representation at recruiting functions and poultry industry events. This group of students helps with the promotion of poultry science while enjoying the activities that are included. In Fall 2021 we felt the time was right for a name change in order to credit their connection to Poultry Science. The group is now called the Aggie Poultry Ambassadors (APA).
