The clinic for ruminants and swine deals with all aspects of health of cattle, small ruminants and swine.

The clinic for ruminants runs an animal hospital, where ruminants referred from regional farms, that suffer from surgical and internal diseases, are diagnosed and treated. The ambulatory clinic delivers the same services on the farms. Diagnostic service deals with herd health problems on demand by the local practitioner. The herd health service visits dairy farms in regular intervals, collects data and gives advise with respect to prevention of diseases.

The focus of the activities is directed at the education of veterinary students. To this end the students are involved in all services of the clinic.

The research is directed at various aspects of animal welfare and the improvement of farm animal health.

The swine hospital is a clinic for all clinical disciplines, open for commercial pig herds and private pig holders.
