The result of this event was very favorable as for the students as for the professors and like that two teachers of Institute told us that: “we are very comfortable and teachers and students will be ready to visit us again”. At the same time, another teacher added: “my students go back home delighted with the visits, although the rainfall in the Agronomic fields. The visit of the museum was wonderful for the passion of the professor who showed it us and for the whole curiosities that he gave to know. The Hall of Necrosis of the Hospital will give us to speak for along time and the reproduction of rabbits or the “tacto” that we were making a mare or “potro de montas”, “lavado integral” for the VISAVETS researchers.
