During the 2014 AAEP Convention, Drs. Chuck Johnson, Mike Pownall and Marybeth Whitcomb presented highlights from the year during the “61 Minutes” business session.
Included in the highlights were the welfare topics of wild horses and people afraid of taking their vacation time.
The group also discussed the newly released 2012 Census of Agriculture numbers, industry outreach to get more people involved in the horse industry, and legislation that affects veterinarians and the veterinary industry.
The group also reported on a BEVA study showing that veterinarians have the most dangerous civilian professions in the United Kingdom.
The sobering topic of vet student debt was addressed, including information from the AVMA’s 2014 Economic Study.
