Invitation to the ADSA-ASAS 2006 Joint Annual Meeting

Opportunity: a favorable combination of circumstances or events. Opportunity is what awaits those that participate in the 2006 Joint Annual Meeting of the world’s two leading professional animal science societies. Members of the American Society of Animal Science (ASAS) and the American Dairy Science Association (ADSA) will join together in Minneapolis, Minnesota from July 9–13, 2006 to exchange and apply knowledge for sustainable use of animals for food and other human needs. Participation at the ADSA/ASAS 2006 Joint Annual Meeting will bring you closer to the leaders in the animal science community. This meeting will serve as an international forum to gather vital information for the future of animal agriculture and will attract over 3000 scientists with diverse and common interests from around the globe. Interests include food science, dairy production, animal & human nutrition, food safety, animal genetics, genomics, growth & reproductive physiology, animal well-being and management, companion animals, meat and muscle biology, animal behavior and technology transfer. It is anticipated that there will be over 1500 scientific presentations, 75 exhibits, and 30 symposia to stimulate and motivate the world’s leading animal, dairy, and food scientists.
