COLUMBUS, OHIO — FEB. 27, 2014 — Dr. David Koncal of Northfield was recently elected to the position of President of the Ohio Veterinary Medical Association (OVMA).

The ADDL has recently seen a group of reproductive failure cases in eight sheep flocks and possibly in a single cattle herd between January 10 – 28, 2014 that have been confirmed by NVSL to be either Cache Valley Virus (CVV) or a closely related Bunyamwera virus. Affected flocks were from 4 counties in eastern and southern Ohio (Morgan, Muskingum, Noble and Perry), 2 flocks in Seneca county and one from northern West Virginia (Ritchie county).
This year’s Midwest Veterinary Conference drew a four-year record of 5,884 veterinary professionals, with notable increases in technician, student and exhibitor attendance.
