Letter Prof. Benesi On September 3rd 2020, we learned with great regret of the passing of Professor Fernando Jose Benesi from Brazil at the age of 69. Prof. Benesi was highly considered by buiatricians all around the world and specially appreciated within the veterinary community in Brazil where he was an example and a mentor for many young veterinarians. Prof. Benesi graduated from the School of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science of University of São Paulo (1975), he completed a master degree in veterinary clinical pathology at Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (1979) and a PhD in Experimental and Comparative Pathology at the University of Sao Paulo (1985). He did a post-doc in Hannover Veterinary School - Germany (1988) in Bovine Obstetrics and Gynecology. His expertise and research focused on hematology and biochemistry, veterinary neonatology, endotoxemia, experimental diarrhea in calf, clinical immunology, tuberculosis, bovine leukosis virus and small ruminants’ infectious diseases. On behalf of the members of the World Association of Buiatrics I would like to express my sympathy to Professor Benesi’s family, friends and colleagues and recognize his important contribution to buiatria. Sincerely yours,
