Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine fourth-year student, Eleas Weimer, won first place in the Student Case Presentation event at the American Association of Bovine Practitioners National Conference. Weimer’s case presentation was titled, “Death Loss Associated with Ill-Thrift and Blindness in a Group of Stocker Calves.” The clinical summary was of a vitamin A deficiency seen in an Auburn, Alabama, herd and diagnosed at the College of Veterinary Medicine’s J.T. Vaughan Large Animal Teaching Hospital. Weimer’s presentation was selected as the best from five presentations given at the 47th Annual AABP Conference, which was held in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The purpose of the student case presentation is to promote student interest in the AABP, encourage development of investigative and communication skills, and allow veterinary students to actively participate in the annual meeting program. Weimer, a native of Markleton, Pennsylvania, received her bachelor's degree in pre-veterinary medicine, biology and animal sciences from the University of Findlay in Findlay, Ohio.
