Ovine Interest Group
Ovine Interest Group (OIG) is a student run organization which focuses on educating and providing opportunities for both Veterinary and Animal Science students within the Australian Sheep Industry.
We aim to ignite a passion for and expand knowledge of the industry, facilitate networking opportunities, increase industry involvement, teach practical skills and provide a variety of experiences within the industry. We achieve this through a range of events including hands-on workshops, demonstrations, producer and business presentations and industry tours. Being involved in OIG is a great way to increase your knowledge and gain valuable experience within the Australian Sheep Industry.
