Biographical/Historical Note:     The first State Livestock Sanitary Board was created in 1917 (ch. 7345) and consisted of the Commissioner of Agriculture, Superintendent of Public Instruction, State Treasurer, and two other Governor-appointed members. This board was succeeded by a new State Livestock Sanitary Board  created in 1923 (Ch. 9201, Laws) to regulate Florida's livestock industry. With seven to nine members chosen by the governor, the board regulated the import and export of meat and livestock, inspected meat sellers, and controlled animal diseases such as cattle tick fever, hog cholera, and tuberculosis. The 1923 board was also charged with appointing a state veterinarian to oversee day to day operations. The first state veterinarian under this new board was J.V. Knapp. His successor in 1952  was C.L. Campbell, who served until 1961. In 1953, the Board's name was changed to the Florida Livestock Board. That board was then abolished in January 1961, and its duties transferred to the Department of Agriculture's newly created Division of Animal Industry (Ch. 59-54; Ch. 61-59, Laws).
