MU College of Veterinary Medicine student Kristen Schweizer feels the mucosal lining of a cow’s stomach for her gastrointestinal physiology class. Irene, the cow, has a permanent hole in the left side of her body, and it lets students get hands-on experience with the gastrointestinal system. MU has one of the few veterinary programs in the nation that gives students two years of clinically-based course material, instead of the typical one year. (LIANA CECIL/Missourian)
