The payment reforms were proposed by Michael Gove, Britain's Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, and involve redirecting payments made to farmers under the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) to a new system of rewarding farmers based on their farming practices and land preservation.

Kynetec, the global leader in agricultural and animal health market research, collaborated with Merck Animal Health, Brakke Consulting and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) on a study designed to better understand the wellbeing and mental health of veterinarians in the United States.

The results of the Merck Animal Health Veterinary Wellbeing Study were presented at the 2018 Veterinary Meeting & Expo (VMX) in Orlando as well as the 2018 Western Veterinary Conference (WVC) in Las Vegas.

Key findings included that around 1 in 20 veterinarians suffer from psychological distress. Whilst this aligns with the general population, younger veterinarians (aged 45 and younger) are more impacted by the financial and emotional stresses of professional veterinary life. Of those reporting emotional distress, depression (94%), burnout (88%) and anxiety (83%) were reported most frequently. High student debt was identified as a key driver of psychological distress. Only half of veterinarians with serious psychological distress are seeking help.
