AABP and Beef Cattle Institute
Online CE Opportunities
Working Together Toward Common Goals
As President of AABP, I had the opportunity to attend the recent National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) Annual Meeting in Nashville. This is the fourth time I have attended this meeting and every time I attend, I truly enjoy the experience. As a representative of AABP, I took the opportunity to attend several committee meetings focused on animal health and well-being and visit with NCBA leadership. As you can imagine, NCBA is discussing many of the same issues that we discuss – animal welfare, antibiotic use, emerging infectious diseases, biosecurity and emergency preparedness. They are also working on developing management guidelines in areas similar to the ones we are currently working on. In fact, we have asked NCBA for input into our guidelines, and likewise we have provided input into theirs.
Over the years, primarily through our Executive Vice President Dr. Gatz Riddell’s efforts as well as other AABP members, we have developed a strong working relationship with NCBA. We continue to foster this relationship in multiple ways and are actively looking for ways to support each other. I should mention that the relationships we have with industry partners go far beyond NCBA.
