The University of Wisconsin - Madison was founded in 1848, but its College of Veterinary Medicine was not established until the early 1980's (!). Until very recently, anyone interested in becoming a veterinarian had to attend an out-of-state program.

Requirements for completion of any type of earlier program would, no doubt, have been vastly different in those times, but anyone with formal credentials would certainly have had to attend school outside of Wisconsin until the last 20 years or so.

Strangely, Wisconsin (known as "America's Dairyland") relied entirely on out-of-state training for its veterinarians for almost 150 years.
