SwineCast Update for September 29, 2011 Science In Practice Award

The annual Allen D. Leman Swine Conference, held September 17-20, 2011, St Paul, MN, is a unique gathering for many industry leaders.  While speakers enjoy sharing 'Leman Moments', the top-notch presentations help bridge the gap from producer to practitioner.

Conversations and keynotes are available at SwineCast.com thanks to the generosity of the University of Minnesota Veterinary Continuing Education Program and Boehringer Ingelheim.

Reminder, the upcoming National Institute for Animal Agriculture's Antibiotic Use in Animal Agriculture conference is coming at a good time, with the recent finding by the GAO that linkage is insufficient to show human resistance resulting from food animal use. If you need to stay on top of this important topic for your organization, be in Chicago Oct. 26 and 27. We'll be there!
