A full week was devoted to discussion, sometimes heated, of bovine digital problems at a meeting organized by the British Cattle Veterinary Association in Liverpool, England, July 16-20, 1990. The first and last days, confined to members of the international study group on diseases of the ruminant digit (sixth meeting) involved twenty papers and considerable discussion on recent observations and studies. The three intervening days' program was a forum for an "Update in Cattle Lameness" (US $20 or £12 sterling post free from Dr. R. D. Murray, Department of Veterinary Clinical Studies, University of Liverpool Field Station, "Leahurst", Neaton, S. Wirral, Cheshire L64 7TE, England) attended by over 200 veterinarians and others, including large, predominantly European and Japanese contingents. This study was conceived in response to NCA's resolution to encourage biological and pharmaceutical manufacturers to provide tissue reaction data on all animal health products and to encourage development of acceptable alternative routes of administration to the problematic IM method.
