The ICPD conference is a traditional scientific conference dedicated to current topics related to farm animal diseases that are related to the respective animal farming systems.
The conference has the overall goal to contribute to healthy and sustainable animal derived food production by optimizing farm animal health and welfare and simultaneously minimizing the use of antimicrobials.
Presentations from expert scientists from all over the world will cover fields of animal husbandry, physiology, genetics, nutrition, welfare, and herd health management, as well the interactions among these disciplines. Species will include ruminants, swine, and poultry.
On 29 June Astrid de Greeff from Wageningen Bioveterinary Research will give a presentation on the effects of milk replacer composition on gut and lung health and performance in veal calves.
The ICPD 2019 is held at the University of Bern, Switzerland, in partnership with the Swiss Federal Food Safety and Veterinary Office.
