There is an increasing recognition within the animal and dairy science community of the complex and dynamic response to stress and the role of immune response in animal productivity and well-being. Obvious instances of infection include mastitis and metritis, but more inconspicuous examples of immunoactivation include weaning, the periparturient period, heat stress, rumen and hindgut acidosis, and psychological/emotional stress. Recent evidence suggests that immune system activation reprioritizes nutrient partitioning away from important production and reproductive phenotypes, and this highlights its enormous economic implications. Consequently, there is large interest by the allied industry (both feed supplement and pharmaceutical) to identify target molecules and strategies to ameliorate immune-system-mediated production losses. Rather than focusing on the basics of immunology, this 35th Discover Conference will concentrate on the activators and consequences of immune activation.
Who Should Attend?
Members of the research and academic community, leading consultants, feed and pharmaceutical industry leaders, and members of governmental and regulatory agencies are encouraged to participate in this program. Graduate students and early career professionals are especially encouraged to attend.
