About UF Food Animal Reproduction and Medicine

The UF Food Animal Reproduction & Medicine Service (FARMS) veterinarians and staff are devoted to the science of food animal health maintenance. Our goal is to improve quality and production of the animals providing dairy and meat products. FARMS delivers health care and services to this vital sector of the food supply system.
