JAM Welcomes Interbull to Orlando!

The 2015 Interbull Annual Meeting will take place July 9–12, 2015, at the Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Florida, on the four days leading up to the start of the 2015 ADSA®-ASAS Joint Annual Meeting (JAM). Interbull is a subcommittee of ICAR and is completing 31 years of existence in 2014. Interbull includes 50 organizations from 32 countries on 5 continents, who participate in Interbull activities involving international genetic evaluations of dairy bulls (83 populations from 6 breeds, delivering about 200,000 evaluations for 40 different traits, 3 times a year).

A separate registration fee is required to attend the full Interbull Annual Meeting, and a special student rate is available. The Interbull meeting is a ticketed event, and those interested in attending can add this to their JAM registration or can register for the Interbull Annual meeting only.

The Interbull morning and afternoon sessions on Sunday, July 12, will be held jointly with JAM. All JAM attendees are invited to attend the Sunday Interbull–JAM Joint sessions at no cost, but must reserve a seat when registering for JAM (ticketed item: Sunday Interbull–JAM Joint Session, Registration Fee = $0).
