President's Message

AABP in Washington

My continued goal as AABP president is to help educate all members on the role of AABP. Last month, I wrote about the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Government Relations Division (GRD) in Washington, D.C. and its relationship to AABP.

A few weeks ago marked my third AVMA GRD visit with the AABP Executive Committee. AVMA has an impressive staff in Washington working on legislative actions that directly affect us. Each year AABP and the American Association of Swine Veterinarians leaders meet with allied organizations such as FDA, USDA, Department of Homeland Security, National Milk Producers Federation, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, and others.

We have an all-day meeting at the AVMA office which provides the opportunity for detailed discussions with these associations, and the next day, appointments with our respective legislators in the House and Senate, armed with talking points on important issues that impact our profession and industry. Some current topics AVMA has defined are access to compounding, prescription mandates and the veterinary loan repayment program. The GRD staff is well versed on current issues, proposed legislation and the positions of the legislators who serve us.

Mission Statement

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