2nd EVP Beef Course Opens
The second offering of the Executive Veterinary Program (EVP) in Beef Cattle Health Management will take place over eight sessions held July 2020 through September 2021 in Olathe, Kan. Registration is currently open for the course created by the University of Illinois and delivered in collaboration with Iowa State University. Early registration deadline is April 5 to receive a $1,000 tuition discount.

For nearly 30 years, EVP has been recognized as a premier credential for elite swine practitioners. In 2017 Dr. Dan Thomson, an internationally known leader in beef cattle production and animal welfare, partnered with the Illinois team to introduce the EVP model to beef practitioners. The 2020 EVP Beef course focuses on cow-calf practitioners.

“The first cohort of beef veterinarians to experience EVP discovered the program’s powerful combination of world-class instructors and a close-knit group of peers,” said Thomson. “EVP is a unique opportunity to grow and thrive in a supportive learning environment. It’s a chance to kick-start your practice, to move from focusing on the day-to-day grind of putting in a prolapse to thinking more broadly about the services you offer producers, from conception to consumption.”

The cost is $9,000, or $8,000 for registrations placed by April 5. For details about the dates, course content, and instructors, and to register, visit, email, or call 217-333-2907.
