Okay. I've been so busy with school, trying to establish ONE not-failing grade in the class that is the bane of my existence (Physiology, taught by one Larry Rex Engelking (click each of his monikers to see his books of which he is very proud of himself)) so that I may be able to continue in vet school without being held back. Still not sure if my efforts have made the cut yet. But in the meantime, I have found out that rather than going to India to study tuberculosis in monkeys this summer, my research grant takes me to Nicaragua where I will be taking a census of animals and people (and testing for TB and brucellosis in the cattle) along a buffer zone of the Bosawas rainforest. So remote I'll have to pack horses and take 'em with me. And so I am making this list of things more for my own use/reference.

Livestock Marking pens
PPD tests (& where to get em)
brucellosis cards (& where to get em)
how long does ppd last not refridgerated?
