Our annual continuing education seminar, which is held the Sunday before the Texas A&M Beef Cattle Short Course, continues to grow. This year’s event attracted more than 80 veterinarians from across Texas.
Dr. Tom Hairgrove, TVMDL’s program coordinator for livestock and food animal systems as well as a Texas A&M Extension Service veterinarian, does an outstanding job of producing the seminar.
Veterinarians who attended the free seminar earned nine hours of continuing education credit.
This year’s seminar included presentations from leading authorities on:
- Epizootic hemorrhagic disease in cattle: our current understanding and newly developed diagnostic tests.
- An update on bovine trichomoniasis with a roundtable discussion.
- Bovine vial diarrhea’s effect on reproductive loss.
- Genetic influence on parasite resistance of sheep.
- Bovine anaplasmosis.
- The ongoing spread of short-legged ticks.
We hope you will make plans to join us for next year’s seminar. Watch the events calendar on the TVMDL home page for details. We will also send a reminder to TVMDL clients who order diagnostic testing for beef cattle.
