Flying In

I always smile when I get on the airplane to head to Washington, D.C. for our annual AABP Executive Committee fly-in in conjunction with our friends on the American Association of Swine Veterinarians (AASV) Executive Committee. There are several reasons to smile, not the least is that it is a list of known characters and talented/knowledgeable veterinarians with whom I enjoy catching up.

However, the biggest grin comes from remembering a day at a corporate feedlot where the assistant manager made a reference to recovering from the seagulls having come through the day before. I was surprised to hear that these birds made it all the way to the High Plains and was unaware of any such migratory path, let alone that they might cause significant issues for this feedlot. It turns out he was referring to a visit from the corporate head-shed management team. “Seagulls,” he said. “They fly in, eat our food, crap on us, and fly away.” Humor as a coping mechanism – one of the greatest attributes of the human spirit.

Mission Statement
