Nearly 500 counties in the United States have large herds of cattle, but no veterinarians to care for them. Although veterinary student Sam Nielson claims that it’s the life of the large animal veterinarian that he’s after, not money, fewer and fewer feel that way, moving to other types of practices that offer both better working conditions and compensation.

Also the pressure of having to preform emergency surgery at  anytime in unpredictable conditions take a special kind of person

Veterinarians care for the health of animals and work to improve public health. They diagnose, treat, and research medical conditions and diseases of pets, livestock, and other animals.
Sydney Stotler's insight:
1. Working with animals always comes with a risk of injury. When working with sick/ hurt animals they can be more likely to strike out. Vets are at risk of being bitten, scratched, lunged at, etc. 2. Equine vets and food animal vets often are out of the office traveling to farms and ranches to care for the animals. They are on call all the time in case of emergencies. In some cases emergency surgery must be performed on site in unsuitable conditions. 3. The schedule of a food animal vet consists of long hours. The schedule is vigorous and can work up to more than 50 hours a week. Also vets can be called out into emergency situations on weekends and holidays.
