AABP Timely News:

President's Message

Harry Truman, Winston Churchill, JK Rowling, and Cattle Veterinarians

President Harry S. Truman once said, “A pessimist is one who makes difficulties of his opportunities and an optimist is one who makes opportunities of his difficulties.” If you remember, I actually started the year of president’s messages with a similar quote by Winston Churchill. It is interesting how two great world leaders relayed a similar message – maybe it was a conspiracy? Regardless of the back story, I think both of these quotes capture nicely what I have been hoping to convey the entire year as AABP president. My message has been about “opportunities in the face of challenges.”

Unless your head is in the sand, you understand that there are many challenges facing cattle veterinarians and the people we serve. But I believe there are equally as many, if not more, opportunities for us to continue to serve society in a manner that is catalytic and transformative. But this will take continuous creativity, ingenuity, a thinking outside the box mind set to develop ideas and strategies to continue to be relevant in today’s ever-changing world. In many cases it will take change in what we do as cattle veterinarians.
