Conference Addresses Large-Scale Production

26 April 2013

UK - Deadlines are approaching for registrations for the conference, 'Does big mean bad? The science behind large scale production' in May.

Large-scale intensive livestock production is currently a hot topic in the UK. There is a lot of confusion over the advantages or disadvantages of such units.

This conference, organised by the British Society of Animal Science, is about the science behind running large successful units. What do we know and what do we need to find out? It will take place in Edinburgh on 23 to 24 May 2013.

The primary focus will be on systems for pig, poultry and dairy production and the conference will draw on relevant industrial experience and views both from the UK and other countries where large units are already operating successfully.

Deadlines are as follows:

  • 26 April: Deadline for submissions. Opportunities for posters/short oral presentations
  • 26 April: After this date, organisers cannot guarantee availability of accommodation
  • 1 May: Register by this date to take advantage of the discounted rate.
