Farm Animal Clinical Club

Welcome to the FACC page!

We aim to promote all things Farm Animal Medicine related and support YOU the farm vets of the future...

Founded in 2003 by Louisa White with a mere 6 members, the FACC has grown to become the largest and most popular student club at the RVC with over 300 members!

The club is also the UK’s first student society to have its own herd of Aberdeen Angus

Club members are responsible for the day to day running of the herd and sprucing them up for the Hertfordshire Show
