The Livestock Health and Production Review is a bimonthly publication published in partnership with Vet360, featuring articles for the Ruminant Veterinary Association of South Africa (RuVASA), a special interest group of the South African Veterinary Association (SAVA). Membership is open to all veterinarians registered with the South African Veterinary Council (SAVC). Current members are dispersed throughout the country and neighbouring countries working in the private and public sector, universities, industries, laboratories, and research institutions. The main business of the Association is to adopt a leadership and guidance role for veterinary issues relating to livestock with a particular emphasis on ruminant populations to ensure food security and safety and to support related enterprises and systems wherein owners derive benefit.
