President's Message

Greetings!
As I write this, I’m sitting at the airport preparing to fly to Austin, TX, for the AVMA Convention and House of Delegates (HOD) meeting. I mentioned this in an earlier column but these twice yearly HOD meetings are something I look forward to every year. The days are long but productive and I’m grateful for the chance to reconnect with friends from all over the country and meet new colleagues as well. Although I’ve been to Texas several times, this will be my first time in Austin so I’m looking forward to exploring the area.

New Dairy Exhibition Requirements

The Iowa Department of Agriculture (IDALS) has announced new testing requirements for dairy cattle participating in Iowa fairs and exhibitions. To help minimize the potential spread of virus, as of July 1, 2024, dairy exhibitors will be required to complete testing for HPAI within 7 days of moving to the exhibition. The statewide order can be viewed on the IDALS website. 



Veterinarians Required to Obtain Informed Consent from Clients

Making sure that the client knows exactly what tests will be performed, what treatment options are available and what costs and risks are involved in the care of their animals is vital to maintaining a good client relationship and reducing future disagreements. A copy of a suggested form, prepared by IVMA legal counsel, is available for IVMA members to download and use. Click here to obtain a copy.
 
IDALS Temporarily Waives Required PT testing for Poultry
The required Pullorum-Typhoid (PT) antigen test for poultry at exhibitions has been temporarily waived because of a lack of availability. The only U.S. supplier of the PT antigen is experiencing significant shortages with product being unavailable to purchase until late summer 2024. In addition, the existing Iowa stocks of the PT antigen have essentially been exhausted.
 
In this letter,
IDALS granted the waiver of Iowa Administrative Code sections 21-60.4(2), 64.34(7) and 64.35(4) until September 1, 2024, or until the product becomes available, whichever occurs first, for poultry to be present at exhibitions, shows or sales without coming from Pullorum-Typhoid clean flocks or having a Pullorum-Typhoid test.
