There are several components to the contest. The Written Exam is to test the participant’s subject matter knowledge. The Skills Exam tests the hands-on or experiential learning and is the largest component of the contest. The Identification (ID) Exam will include Veterinary Instruments, Breeds (cattle, horses, sheep, goats, swine, dogs, and cats), Parasites, and Internal Organs. Finally, the Communication portion of the contest helps to develop research and public speaking skills.
