The Scientific Committee has been focusing on a variety of novel topics of global importance in the areas of reproduction, bacterial and viral diseases, animal welfare, immunology and vaccinology, nutrition, herd management, food safety and the use of antimicrobial agents. Furthermore, to promote a consistent program that meets the most diverse interests of the sector, the event will offer pre-congress sessions on six different areas, including one on agribusiness scheduled on June 21st.
