TULSA — The Birthing Center at the Tulsa State Fair gives the public a glimpse at the miracle of life.
TCC Veterinary Tech Student Mikayla Robin said, “People in the veterinary field don’t really get to talk about what they do. So, this gives us an opportunity to share those experiences and share the things that we actually go through on the day-to-day.”
Fairgoers can see newborn pigs, goats, sheep, cows, chicks, and more. And even though you can’t touch or hold the newborns, you learn a lot from just witnessing the miracle of life
One little boy said, “They came from their mama.... when they come, sometimes they’re hungry.”
A young lady said, “(I learned that) horses are pregnant for 336 days” and another young lady added, “I learned that birthing looks difficult.”
Robin said, “It’s hard work; it’s not easy work. I’m sweating. But I enjoy being with people, and I enjoy talking to people. It’s something I’m really passionate about, and if I can share that passion with someone else, it makes me really happy.”
