The authors respond to a 2009 report by professor Philip Lowe that claims that there is a better use of veterinary expertise in food production in Great Britain. They believe that farm veterinarians lack grasp on the business side of their practice such as pharmacy income and subsidising professional fees. They add that careers in farm veterinary lack clarity that could discourage future farm veterinarians. They also call for quality improvement of farm animal continuing professional development (CPD).
