Standing on the Shoulders of Giants…
During the AABP Business Luncheon at our 47th Annual Meeting last week in Albuquerque, N.M., a couple of very humble honorees stated that they were “standing on the shoulders of giants.” Who were those giants and why should we care?
Over a half-century ago, a group of visionary cattle veterinarians meeting in Chicago during the 1964 AVMA Conference gathered together and decided it was time to create a group dedicated “to endeavor to do all things necessary to enhance the interests, to improve the public stature, and increase the knowledge of veterinarians in the field of dairy and beef cattle practice [AABP Objectives, Section 1].” A few months later, in 1965, the American Association of Bovine Practitioners was founded. Since that time, the mission of the AABP has remained very true to its founding principles despite the fact that our profession and the subsequent generations of cattle veterinarians operate in a much different world today.
The American Association of Bovine Practitioners is an international
association of veterinarians serving society as leaders in cattle
health, welfare and productivity.
