Club memberships are still recovering from COVID-19, but attendance is growing. The students are happy to be back on campus and interacting with their peers! There are several clubs that meet the needs and interests of students in animal sciences.

The Collegiate Horsemen’s Association is for students who are interested in all things horse-related.

Student Swine Cooperative
Student Swine Cooperative
Student-run cooperatives offer the ultimate experiential experiences. Students own, operate, and manage their own animals. Student Swine Cooperative (SSC) members purchase 10 feeder pigs each semester, feed and harvest them when they reach market weight, and sell the pork to the public. Cougar Cattle Feeder (CCF) members solicit donations of live cattle each year and work in consultation with advisors to feed, doctor, manage health and finances, collect performance data, and harvest and market beef. Cooperative University Dairy Students (CUDS) members manage a 35-cow milking herd, plus young stock and dry cows. Milk is marketed to the WSU Creamery where it is used to make award-winning Cougar Gold Cheese and Ferdinand’s ice cream.
