Breaking News


On behalf of the students, alumni, faculty and staff of the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania (Penn Vet), we applaud Governor Wolf’s recommendation for $30.4 million in funding for Penn Vet in his proposed budget for fiscal year 2018-2019. The proposal reflects the Commonwealth’s ongoing commitment to, and recognition of, Penn Vet’s critical role as a research and service provider to Pennsylvania agriculture. Penn Vet is a major contributor to maintaining the viability, health and profitability of our state’s diverse and economically important livestock and poultry industries. The Commonwealth’s support for Penn Vet has provided a tremendous return on investment for taxpayers, ensuring their food supply is among the safest in the world.

We are grateful for the support of State Representatives Eric Roe and James Roebuck, Jr., as well as for the support of Senators Vincent Hughes and Thomas Killion. We value our productive partnership with Secretary Russell Redding and longstanding collaboration with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, which enables us to support public health through infectious disease control programs and contribute to the expanding economic success of the statewide agriculture community.

We look forward to working with the Legislature in ensuring that this proposal is adopted and thereby protecting the food supply for 12 million Pennsylvanians.
