AABP Student Chapter

We are the University of Georgia student chapter of the American Association of Bovine Practitioners.  Our goal is to introduce veterinary students to the advantages of bovine and mixed practice and to allow them to increase their knowledge and abilities in the area of food animal production medicine. We also support the interest of students in swine production medicine and encourage them to join the AASV as a student member.

AABP Mission Statement

The American Association of Bovine Practitioners is an international association of veterinarians organized to enhance the professional lives of its members through relevant continuing education that will improve the well-being of cattle and the economic success of their owners, increase awareness and promote leadership for issues critical to cattle industries, and improve opportunities for careers in bovine medicine.
