An Evaluation of Turkey Livestock Congresses (1968-2000)

Ali Yiğit, Şule Sanal, Ayşe MENTEŞ GÜRLER

Abstract: In order to improve animal husbandry in Turkey, eight livestock congresses were held between 1968-2000 under the leadership of the Turkish Veterinary Medical Association (TVMA). In these congresses, besides problems in the livestock sector, issues related to the production and consumption of animal products were also discussed. The aim was for the organizers and participants to be composed of different fields related to animal husbandry and thus address the issue from every perspective. The establishment of an autonomous "Ministry of Livestock" was demanded in all congresses. Problems and solution proposals regarding animal husbandry in Turkey were scientifically discussed with veterinarians, producers, industrialists, consumers, and government representatives. As a result, it can be said that the topics discussed in the congresses shed light on the current problems and solutions regarding the development of veterinary medicine and country animal husbandry.
