President's Message

Milestones and Looking Ahead…

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the American Association of Bovine Practitioners. What began back in 1965 as a modest group of well-intentioned cattle veterinarians has come a long way over the last half century. As cattle veterinarians, each of us has been molded into the professionals we are today by many unique influences. In fact, very few of us have identical pedigrees (DVM influences) in our professional development. This brings each of us a truly unique perspective and an opportunity to appreciate (while we sometimes disagree with) the perspectives of our colleagues.

Mission Statement

The American Association of Bovine Practitioners is an international association of veterinarians serving society as leaders in cattle health, welfare and productivity.

AABP Continuing Education

In keeping with the AABP Mission Statement "The AABP is an international association of veterinarians organized to enhance the professional lives of its members through relevant continuing education that will improve the well-being of cattle and the economic success of their owners, increase awareness and promote leadership for issues critical to cattle industries, and improve opportunities for careers in bovine medicine." AABP is working to create online CE training modules for members.
