A copy of the abstract is attached with permission.
95th District Veterinarians Conference, Armidale NSW 18-21 March 2013
‘An excellent conference and one example of the great service that LPHA District Veterinarians provide to primary industries and regional NSW.
Attached is a copy of the program. The papers should be up on the Flock and Herd website by the end of April. If I think of it, or I am prodded, I will remind you then.
Attached is WormFax for February. ‘Some high egg counts around the traps.
After a relatively dry spring and early summer in many areas, exacerbated by above average temps, there has been quite a bit of rain since mid-January, especially in summer rainfall (northern) parts of NSW.
This should be up on our website soon, where you will also find previous issues, plus explanatory notes. http://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/aboutus/resources/periodicals/newsletters/wormfax
I seem to recall Novartis means ‘new art’ or ‘new skills’, but Zoetis? (the new moniker for Pfizer Animal Health).
Lee Taylor (of Zoetis) told me at the DVs Conference that Zoetis means ‘pertaining to life’.
And here is the blurb from the Zoetis website [ http://www.zoetis.com/about
‘Our name, Zoetis (z-EH-tis), has its root in zo, familiar in words such as zoo and zoology and derived from zoetic, meaning pertaining to life. It signals our companys dedication to supporting the veterinarians and livestock producers everywhere who raise and care for the farm and companion animals on which we all depend. ‘
