President's Message

 As the long, humid, relaxing (?), late summer days roll by, your IVMA marches along working for our profession. Committee meetings and reports are coming in, final touches on the Annual Meeting are being hammered out, the Sports and Field Day is being readied and legislative concerns/issues are being reviewed with our lobbyists. (By the way, thank you PAC Sustaining Members.) Your IVMA, along with the NVMA are participating in the CVM class of 2021 orientation and White Coat ceremony. These students are our future association members and the IVMA will continue to support them with our Emerging Leader Liaisons, Foundation scholarships and alliance with the CVM. We welcome their talents and passions for the profession throughout their veterinary careers.  More...

Bid on a Piece of Veterinary History at
IVMA Annual Meeting!

A collection of historic veterinary items will be available to purchase through a silent auction at this year’s IVMA Annual Meeting. The auction will benefit the IVMA Foundation. The veterinary memorabilia has been donated by Dr. George Beran. Dr. Beran acquired the historic veterinary tools and books during his distinguished 44 year career as a professor at Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine.

The items will be available for viewing and bidding on the 1st floor of the Scheman Building near the registration desk during the IVMA Annual Meeting on September 21-22.  Bidding will close at 11:30 am on Friday, September 22.

Proceeds from the auction will be used to fund a scholarship for a deserving ISU CVM student. Come to Annual Meeting to place your bids! You don’t need to be a registered conference attendee to come and bid.  Click here to view the auction items.



Update to Heifer Brucellosis Vaccination Protocol

In this year’s Iowa legislative session Iowa Code of Law chapter 164 (Brucellosis – Bovine and Designated Animals) was amended through House File 617 to change the age of brucellosis vaccination of heifers age to between four and twelve months of age, effective July 1, 2017.  Previously, this was four to ten months of age.  This change is consistent with the USDA Bovine Brucellosis Uniform Methods & Rules.  As you visit with veterinarians in food animal practices who perform brucellosis vaccinations of this change.
In addition, the State Veterinarian and IDALS encourages veterinarians to calfhood vaccinate heifer calves.  There are still states that require brucellosis vaccination of female cattle in their import requirements.  In addition, calfhood vaccination is an opportunity for applying official animal ID.

If you have any questions, please contact Dr. David Schmitt, State Veterinarian, at 515/281-8601 or Dr. Jeff Kaisand, Assistant State Veterinarian, at 515-281-0866.
