Veterinarians are in short supply. Wisconsin doesn't have a veterinarian school and wants to send 60 students to the University of Minnesota vet school. Wisconsin is willing to build a large animal facility in River Falls to be shared by both WI and MN. University of Minnesota President C. Peter McGraw says WI only wants to pay for instructional costs of WI students and not help with the cost of expanded facilities needed to take in WI students.
