President's Message

Using Data for the Difficult Conversations

As veterinary medicine and the livestock industries continue to evolve and maintain a progressive stance, we often face challenges in regard to ethics and interpretation of our social license within our profession. There are a few current issues facing our industries and the profession.

Some of these require us to take a position, but more importantly, we need to report the research and science behind the issues. At times, we may not agree with a specific position, but if data from well-conducted, peer-reviewed studies exist, then we must report the facts.

One current example is the upcoming ban on tail docking in dairy cattle by the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF). The NMPF originally slated 2022 to be the year for discontinuing tail docking, but in October of 2015, the NMPF board approved a resolution to change the deadline to 2017.
