Special Interest Groups
The Roseworthy Campus is the base of many student-oriented Special Interest Groups. The groups listed below are run by students with an interest in a particular group of animals. Some groups are restricted in their ‘membership’ whereas others are open to all students that study at Roseworthy. For contact details about each group, please contact the APO.
AWEsig – The Animal Welfare & Ethics Special Interest Group
AWEsig is a student group dedicated to their own personal education and discovery in the field of Animal Welfare and Ethics in order to be informed, well-rounded clinicians & scientists after graduation. We enjoy meeting people in the field of animal welfare, running educational events showing how YOU can make a difference when working with animals, learning about behaviour and also some fundraising activities. We have run an event on improved horse training techniques – Academic Horse Training – at Kersbrook Equestrian Centre, a dog hydrotherapy session at Glenside Veterinary Clinic and several appeals and fundraisers.
Bovine Appreciation Group
The aim of the group is to learn more about all aspects of cattle production, medicine, industry and practical skills, be it dairy, beef, stud, commercial, buffalo or feedlot (or any other production system that may exist!). The group is just a gathering of like-minded students that wish to broaden their bovine awareness and get hands on experience, while having some fun and getting to know all of their peers. Many people outside of uni will be also be involved from cattle vets, to artificial breeding technicians, to producers, consultants and industry folk to name just a few.
