The article features the Veterinary Public Health Association (VPHA) and its role in the British society. It states that the profession is not only about meat hygiene, but also about the important role animals played in society in general, in terms of food, environmental impact and disease. It also notes that a current concern is the waste management of animal manure, as well as how diseases which affect them impact people. The VPHA is celebrating its 50th year at its spring conference on March 27, 2010.
