The Ohio Dairy Veterinarians was formed in July, 2000. Our mission is to provide continuing education to members, and to serve Ohio’s Dairy Industry. Continuing education is focused on areas of production medicine and delivered to the members via an annual meeting held the first weekend in January. They serve the industry in several ways, including participation in the Ohio Dairy Industry Forum, and the Ohio Department of Agriculture’s Cattle Health Advisory Committee. They also serve by working with The Ohio State University to encourage students to explore food animal practice and they serve as dairy industry educators to the people in their communities.
