The Kutztown High School offers a vet science class. Within the elective students learn about the anatomy and needs of animals. The school’s focus of large or small animals alternates each year. This year the students focused on the science of large animals. Throughout the year, students learned about an array of large animals including horses, sheep, and pigs. Within the past two months the agricultural students have been raising two pigs.
