Date:4/24/2009

SCHAUMBURG, Ill., April 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- World Veterinary Day, April 25, 2009, celebrates the important relationship between veterinarians and livestock farmers.

"In a little more than a year, the AVMA has created numerous resources to enhance the public's knowledge and appreciation of the vital role of veterinarians' work with livestock farmers and the many safeguards to animal and human health that have emerged as a result of that work."

Information on the page is geared toward various stakeholders, including practitioners, veterinary colleges, and state and industry associations.

The maps also show populations of food animals at the county level. The page links to studies, statistics, and media coverage relevant to the demand for veterinarians in food supply medicine.
