In 2019, the AABP Cattle Branding Working Group was created with members of the AABP Animal Welfare Committee and Beef Health Management Committee, along with representatives from the AABP Board of Directors. The working group was chaired by Dr. Tiffany Lee and was formed due to conversations among the Animal Welfare Committee regarding branding. The goal of the working group was to review the literature for studies on branding, develop resources discussing branding, and provide a document that outlined each state’s branding regulations. On this podcast, AABP Executive Director Dr. Fred Gingrich is joined by members of the working group including Dr. Tiffany Lee, Dr. Renee Dewell, Dr. Gaby Maier, and Dr. Dave Sjeklocha, to discuss the working group’s findings and the resources they developed. This working group is a great example of AABP addressing a topic discussed by a committee and a dedicated group of volunteers developing and providing relevant scientific resources for our members. You can find the summary of the working group's findings at https://bit.ly/2D4lY2y and a spreadsheet of state regulations located on the AABP Animal Welfare Committee page at https://bit.ly/31sxsWY. AABP encourages members to review these resources and provide them to clients as they work through the decision process on branding for their cattle.
