On February 4, the Brakke Consulting Jobs Index stood at 140, vs 138 at October 1, 2018 and 126 last year at this time. The Index is computed by visiting the job boards of large and small companies in the animal health and nutrition industries. The base 100 was established October 1, 2008. Like stock indices, the Jobs Index has been updated to account for consolidation in the industry by bringing in new companies to replace those who have left the industry, while also taking into consideration that some old companies are now just part of other, larger companies.
