Last year the Allen D. Leman Swine Conference was held online because that was the only way. This September 18-21, we are holding the industry’s premier health and production management conference as a hybrid event because it is the best way for you.
This past week-end, the 52nd AASV annual meeting was held online. Participants were welcomed into the meeting platform with a realistic-looking conference lobby. The UMN swine faculty and students were recognized by the association for their important work from research findings to outstanding service to the industry.
The 2021 AASV annual meeting is starting this week-end! The meeting will be a little different this year as we will all participate online but we hope you can join us! Below is the list of UMN speakers and when you can see their talks live (times are in Central Standard Time).
For the second year in a row, University of Illinois veterinary student Zack Talbert has received the Morrison Swine Innovator Prize, an award given to veterinary students who want to specialize in swine medicine. The award was presented September 22nd at the annual Allen D. Leman Swine Conference.
All North American veterinary students with an interest in swine health and production were eligible. Talbert’s presentation on testing the performance of a fumigation box designed to improve the removal of pathogens from objects entering a swine barn, persuaded reviewers to award him the Prize. Talbert won in 2019 for inventing the Bio-Barrier 360.
