The state of Missouri is paying tribute Thursday to State Veterinarian Dr. Taylor Woods on the opening day of the State Fair in Sedalia.  Woods has served as the State Veterinarian twice, collectively serving for nearly 20 years. 

During that time, he’s been credited with developing policy and procedures to combat numerous diseases that threaten Missouri’s livestock industry.  Dr. Woods sat down this week with St. Louis Public Radio’s Marshall Griffin and talked about just what it is that a State Veterinarian does. You can listen to their conversation above.
