AbstractAs we enter the 1980`s, whilst our thoughts must be mainly projected toward the future, a few recollections of the progress of the veterinary profession during the 1970`s should not go amiss. Perhaps, on a year-to-year basis, little seemed to change. The same things happened at the same time every year. To compare 1970 with 1980, however, provides a clearer picture of what has happened within the profession and the difficulties we now face, particularly in rural practice. Looking at society in general in the same way presents a much greater series of changes over that decade. The world of electronic gadgetry, computerisation, plastic throw-aways and fast travel has, whether we like it or not, changed our lives considerably
