This meeting serves as an international forum to gather vital information for the future of animal agriculture, and attracts over 3,000 attendees from the industrial and academic worlds, with diverse and common interests from around the globe. Interests include food science, dairy production, animal and human nutrition, food safety, animal genetics, genomics, growth and reproductive physiology, animal well-being and management, companion animals, meat and muscle biology, animal behavior, and technology transfer. Meeting programming includes over 2,000 scientific presentations, 100 exhibits, and 30 symposia to stimulate and motivate the world’s leading animal, dairy, and food scientists.
