It is aimed at documenting knowledge, experience and expertise of the veterinary professional and animal scientists to improve the effectiveness of veterinary delivery systems, the productivity of livestock farming, animal welfare and human well being. MJVR also serves as a forum for emerging and contemporary issues affecting the livestock industry and health (human and animals).
