US - Registration is open for the 18th Annual Swine Disease Conference at Iowa State University on 4 and 5 November 2010.

The Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine, the Iowa Pork Industry Center, The Iowa Veterinary Medicine Association, and the American Association of Swine Veterinarians (AASV), District 6, sponsor the 18th Annual Swine Disease Conference. The conference will be held at the Scheman Building, in Ames, Iowa on 4 and 5 November 2010.

The programme is designed to answer daily concerns of swine practitioners. The conference focuses on emerging swine pathogens and their control, and improvements in diagnostics and risk-based controls useful for on-farm health plan development. Special emphasis is on information necessary to formulate management plans for disease control, for biosecurity, and for food safety enhancement.

The goals of the conference are:

  • to enable swine practitioners to assist producers in a rapidly changing and global production environment, and
  • to enhance practitioner decision-making tools in disease control, animal welfare, and food safety for the benefit of animals, clients and consumers.

The conference schedule and registration information is available online [click here]. Early registration ends on 15 October.
