In a blink of an eye, week two is completed. To finish up my time in Belize we visited a beef farm and another pig farm. At the beef farm I was able to practice my injecting skills as we administered vitamins, dewormer and vaccines against rabies and black leg. I was able to administer these to a bull, a baby calf, and a lot of heifers. We also got to take part in a castration on a stallion, this is an intact horse. It was an amazing day learning new things and perfecting my skills. We went to a pig farm and got to do more castrations on piglets. I also got the opportunity to castrate a boar who was about 200 pounds. This was a procedure that I would never get to see back in the states. We finished off the last day by presenting my presentation I had to make for my classmates and taking our exam. My time in Belize was unforgettable and taught me more than I could ever imagine.
