The American Bovine Foundation is a non-profit organization.  Our mission is the improvement of large animal husbandry, genetics and health by encouraging veterinary students and graduating veterinarians to enter the area of bovine practice.  Our goal is to increase the number and availability of rural practitioners throughout the cattle raising areas of the United States.
