American Association of Bovine Practitioners (AABP)
The Auburn student chapter of AABP strives to serve our community as future leaders in cattle health, welfare, and productivity. Our group is made up of members from all over the US, with different backgrounds and level of experience.
Principle Activities, Events, or Programs:
We host lunch or dinner meetings several times per month and bring in guest speakers that talk about anything from emerging issues in the cattle industry to discussing veterinary practice building techniques. We have weekly rounds every Wednesday at 5:00 pm, we meet in the McClary Barn at the large animal hospital of the vet school. These are open to both veterinary and pre-veterinary students. We go through the hospital with a clinician and discuss the cases.
How this group’s activities benefit the profession, university, and community:
Weekly rounds help students apply knowledge learned in the classroom to actual cases. Meetings with guest speakers educate students and faculty alike on various topics and helps bring awareness to current issues in the industry. AABP is open to both those that are interested in practicing veterinary medicine with cattle and those that may not have much or any experience at all but want to learn more.
