The Future of Cattle Health

Irish Veterinary Journal

Irish Veterinary Journal is still accepting submissions to be included in the special issue on the Future of Cattle Health. Inspired by the World Buiatrics Congress held in Dublin in July 2016, the collection also includes commissioned reviews from conference speakers and world experts.

This thematic series explores all aspects of bovine health, including metabolic diseases, reproduction, herd-health management, and antibiotic use. These articles have been selected to demonstrate the broad scope of research that influences buiatrics and cattle care.

We invite you to submit original research or reviews on topics relating to recent advances in the field of cattle health and welfare. To submit your manuscript, please use our online submission system, and indicate in your cover letter that you would like the manuscript to be considered for this article collection.

For more information on how to submit your article to Irish Veterinary Journal, please see our submission guidelines.
