Biosecurity conference set for April 4 in Kansas City

“From Farm to Table – Food System Biosecurity for Animal Agriculture” is the theme of the National Institute for Animal Agriculture 2016 Annual Conference, April 4–7, 2016 at the Downtown Marriott in Kansas City, Mo.

The biosecurity emphasis of the Conference concentrates on identifying risks, challenges and solutions of animal disease epidemics and ways producers can be proactive in protecting their animals from illness, a crucial discussion in the animal agriculture industry.

Speakers on this imperative and timely topic include industry experts, regulatory agency authorities, academic specialists and animal agriculture professionals who deal daily with the issues.

In addition, NIAA species committees and issues councils sessions will meet during the conference to discuss on—going and trending concerns to the broad animal agriculture industry. Outstanding industry experts will be featured on twelve different agendas immediately following the opening plenary session.
