ACVlist - member email discussion group

The ACVlist is an initiative of the Australian Cattle Veterinarians where members can participate in a private email discussion list. In this forum, members can seek and express current veterinary opinions about issues that concern cattle veterinarians in Australia.  

The rules and guidelines are created to protect this valuable Australian Cattle Veterinarians member benefit and the interests of all members that partake in these discussions, whilst allowing members to draw an opinion from their peers in dealing with clients, industry, government, paraprofessionals and non-member colleagues.

Whether you would like to start a topic yourself, weigh in on a current discussion, or simply observe from the sidelines, the ACVList discussion group awaits!

Cattle Vet Consultant (CVC)

In the ideal world, farmers would have a detailed herd health plan that involved activities such as routine husbandry practices, vaccinations, parasite control, reproductive treatments and biosecurity activities that was created with the assistance of an expert who could ensure the appropriateness and correct timing for each component.

The Cattle Vet Consultant is a piece of software designed to allow veterinarians to create farm herd health management plans for farmers in the context of a veterinary consultation.

Cattle Vet Consultant is distributed to Australian Cattle Veterinarians members free of charge for their personal use as a member benefit.
