Another Amazing Conference
Holy Cow! What a great time in St. Louis last month at the “Gateway to Success” 52nd Annual AABP Conference. I always come away from the
annual meeting rejuvenated and tired at the same time; rejuvenated by the high-quality CE, networking with colleagues, interaction with
students, generosity of our members and accomplishments of our peers, and tired because there is so much going on and I don’t want to
miss any of it.
Our 2019 conference theme, “Gateway to Success”, was focused on all the things that set our members and their clients up for
success and, in my opinion, the week hit the bull’s eye. We kicked things off with an inspiring keynote session about “success” by Drs.
Grooms and Willingham and followed that up with technical presentations on topics ranging from clinical skills and production
technologies to research updates and practice management.
The program committee did a fantastic job of putting together an excellent collection of pre-conference seminars, clinical forums,
practice tips, research summaries, poster sessions and over 50 scientific sessions covering hot topics, beef, dairy, practice management,
clinical skills, small ruminants and more – all of which was RACE-approved and will be available to all AABP members on the Beef Cattle
Institute portal for review and CE credit.
