More than 230 veterinarians and veterinary students interested in beef cattle medicine congregated at the meeting that discussed such timely issues as the effects of drought on cattle health, distiller's grains management, pain management, feedlot pathogens and more.

AVC's next meeting will be Dec. 1-3 in Denver, at which time plans will be finalized for its first-ever Spring meeting in Washington, D.C.
