In 2012, the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine will bring the Leman Swine Conference to China. The Conference will present the latest developments on swine research and production, disease surveillance and control, integration of production and public health, and their impacts on the global economy to China – the world’s biggest pork-producing country. Speakers at the conference will represent experts from the U.S. and China.

Who Should Attend?

The Leman Swine Conference is directed at decision-makers in the industry and high-level content will revolve around the latest scientific developments on disease and production management.
