Plan to Attend Livestock Biotech Summit
August 8, 2014

The 3rd Livestock Biotech Summit will be held in Sioux Falls, S.D., on Sept 16-18. This conference offers a focus on using the tools of biotechnology to improve agricultural animals to address the challenges faced in health, food and industrial applications worldwide. Topics to be discussed include the communication, research and development, regulatory system and welfare improvements that can be achieved by the animal biotechnology community. This conference will also focus on animal welfare concerns and how the food/fiber chain, from producers to consumers, will evolve in the future.

"As a sheep producer, I feel we must embrace these tools of biotechnology and animal welfare to help achieve our industry's mission," said Jerry Pommer, Ovis LLC.
