The United States Animal Health Association has announced the relocation of its headquarters to St. Joseph, Mo. The association had been located in Richmond, Va.
"This is a very exciting time for USAHA," says USAHA president and Georgia State Veterinarian Lee Myers. "We have been pleased with the results of our transition to Missouri, and plan to continue the same valuable contribution to the animal health community."
Established in 1897, the USAHA aims to protect animal and public health by eliminating livestock disease. Its 1,400 members include state and federal animal health officials, national allied organizations, regional representatives, and individual members.
"St. Joseph has a strong animal health community," says Ted Allison, president and CEO, St. Joseph Area Chamber of Commerce. "Both the USAHA and area companies will benefit from this move."
St. Joseph lies within the KC Animal Health Corridor. The area represent one-third of global animal health industry sales.
