Here's why you should attend the BSAS conference this year
The British Society of Animal Science (BSAS) conference is coming up at the end of March, in Nottingham.
BSAS Annual Conference
East Midlands Conference Centre, Nottingham
30 March – 1st April 2020
Here are three reasons why we think you should definitely attend!
1- Learn from UK and international speakers on relevant topics
It‚Äôs a great way to hear from a wide range of UK and international speakers on topical areas such as how to create a holistic approach to define the role of animal science in solving the world‚Äôs food crisis, whilst also addressing the challenges of food security, nutrition and production.
2- Meet people in your sector
The conference will be full of people interested or involved in animal science (through industry or academia), people who work with animals and livestock and who are involved in the care, sustainability and utility of animals. During three days, you‚Äôll have the opportunity to speak with them about what you‚Äôre passionate about, share your problems, listen to theirs, get ideas for solutions and inspiration. The KTN agri-food team has made useful connections at the conference in previous years.
3 – Learn about advanced scientific research taking place
It‚Äôs an opportunity to find out about the innovation that‚Äôs happening in the sector, with sessions such as Equine Reproduction and Breeding Management, Gut Microbiome,¬† as well as Minerals in Human and Animal Diets.
