Richard W. Newpher:  Perpetuating the Spirit of Veterinary Humanity

The Pennsylvania Friends of Agriculture Foundation has a scholarship program aimed at encouraging students to pursue veterinary careers in large animal agriculture.

In pursuit of our Foundation’s mission, we feel it is critically important to raise awareness of the need for veterinarians who work in food supply; the food chain from farm to fork.

cow-closeupBoth the veterinary and agricultural communities of Pennsylvania are concerned about developing veterinarians who will choose to care for producers’ livestock. This is critical to our ability to manage biosecurity, public health and food safety. We firmly believe in order to entice Pennsylvania students who attend the University of Pennsylvania to create a large animal practice; we must provide scholarship assistance to them.

To this end, we ask for your assistance in this very important endeavor. Simply put, we need your help! The families of Pennsylvania need your help; farmers need your help!
