IPB University School of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences Provide KKN-T Students with Materials Relevant to Conditions in the Field

IPB University's School of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Science (SKHB) provides thematic Real Work Lectures (KKN) for students, 22/05. This briefing activity brought SKHB IPB University lecturers who are experts in their fields. The debriefing materials include Survey Methods and Data Collection at KKN Locations, Medicinal Plants and Live Pharmacies, Sacrificial Animals which include antemortem examinations, animal welfare and postmortem examinations, as well as Oral and Nail Disease Education (PMK) in Ruminants to the Community.

Prof. Ni Wayan Kurniani Karja, Vice Dean for Academic and Student Affairs at SKHB IPB University advised students who will carry out KKN-T to always maintain the good name of IPB University, especially SKHB. She appealed to students to always be friendly, maintain attitudes and behavior, and learn how to communicate well and politely.

She also suggested that IPB University students should cooperate and tolerate each other. This is because one group will consist of students from various faculties. "Congratulations on KKN, hopefully the programs that will be run can run well," she added.

Prof. Deni Noviana, Dean of SKHB IPB University, in his speech advised that students can take advantage of KKN-T activities as a vehicle for learning in three ways, namely training in interacting with the community, training in communication, and training in sociopreneurship.

“This debriefing activity is important. The debriefing materials have been designed to equip students with trending and important topics in today's society,” said Prof. Deni.

The first material on the Basics of Survey Methods and Data Collection at the KKN-T Location was delivered by Dr. Etih Sudarnika from the Department of Animal Diseases and Veterinary Health. Dr. Etih explained about three things, namely data collection techniques, questionnaire design techniques, and interview techniques.

"There are many benefits from data collection activities. The collected data can be used to describe a situation, make plans, control, evaluate, or as a basis for making decisions or solving problems," she explained.

The second material was Introduction to Medicinal Plants and Living Pharmacies which was delivered by Dr. Lina Noviyanti Sutardi, a lecturer at the Department of Veterinary Clinic Reproduction and Pathology. Dr. Lina explained about herbal medicine, the classification of natural medicines, scientific herbs, and family medicinal plants.

"Family medicinal plants or live pharmacies can use plants that are easily available. Plants can also be planted in narrow areas such as the yard, and local residents can use them together," said Dr. Lina.

The third material on Antemortem Examination and Application of Animal Welfare in Slaughtering Sacrificial Animals was delivered by drh Supratikno, MSi from the Department of Anatomy, Physiology and Pharmacology. He said that due to the current epidemic of oral and nail disease, antemortem examinations were very important.

"Antemortem examination is carried out 24 hours before slaughter. Inspections can be carried out in temporary storage cages, clip cages, even when they are still in a transport vehicle. This can be done to prevent sick animals from being included in healthy animal groups," he added.

Furthermore, the fourth material on the Principles of Postmortem Examination of Sacrificial Animals was delivered by Dr. Vetnizah Juniantito, a lecturer at the Department of Veterinary Clinic Reproduction and Pathology. Dr Tito conveyed that the postmortem examination was aimed at checking the health of the animal to complement the antemortem examination. He said the examination of the body's organs to help when the disease is not detected clinically. Dr. Tito then explained how to examine organs such as the lungs, kidneys, heart, liver, spleen, gastrointestinal tract and other organs.

The fifth material, Introduction to Oral and Nail Diseases, was delivered by Dr. Denny Widaya Lukman from the Department of Animal Diseases and Veterinary Health. The IPB University lecturer explained, "There are four regional statuses based on government regulations, namely outbreak areas, infected, suspected, and free."

According to the latest data, he said, currently the status is based on an archipelago, where the islands of Java, Sumatra, and Kalimantan are already epidemic and infected areas, while the island of Sulawesi to the east is still classified as free. Dr. Denny thoroughly explores the virus that causes, types of susceptible animals, pain levels, disinfectants, to the process of inactivating the FMD virus in meat, milk and their processed products.

"The FMD virus will be inactive in meat after an internal heating process of at least 70 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes. In addition, the withering process which causes a decrease in pH to less than six, commercial sterilization such as canning, salting and drying meat can inactivate this virus. In milk, the virus is inactive in the pasteurization process, UHT, fermentation such as yogurt, cheese making, caramel and other processing processes," he explained. (km/Ra) (IAAS/SYA)
