The American Society of Animal Science (ASAS) and the Canadian Society of Animal Science (CSAS) will hold the 2017 ASAS-CSAS Annual Meeting & Trade Show in Baltimore, MD from July 8 to July 12, 2017.
As many of you are aware, this is the inaugural year of the meeting. Therefore, we have three main goals for the 2017 meeting: 1) to present high quality, relevant science that links animal science and animal agriculture, 2) to return to our roots, by having a number of the social events that will enhance networking and add a family feel to the meeting and 3) to create a successful and sustainable new meeting model.
