Attention all scientists, researchers, trade show coordinators, marketing directors, account representatives and others in the animal, dairy and poultry industries. The 2007 Joint Annual Meeting of the American Dairy Science Association (ADSA), Poultry Science Association (PSA), Asociación Mexicana de Producción Animal (AMPA), and the American Society of Animal Science (ASAS) will be held July 7-12, 2007 in San Antonio, Texas.

The 2007 Joint Annual Meeting serves as an international forum to gather vital information for the future of animal agriculture and will attract over 3,500 scientists/researchers with diverse yet common interests from around the globe. Interests include food science, dairy production, animal and human nutrition, livestock transport, food safety, production and management, and web-based information programs. Over 1500 oral and poster presentations, 75 exhibits, and 35 symposia will be sure to intrigue the world’s leading animal, dairy, poultry and food scientists.

San Antonio, now the nation’s eighth largest city, is a rich blend of deeply rooted traditions and 21st century cosmopolitan flair. What's special about San Antonio? Could it be The Alamo, the River Walk, conjunto music, friendly people, Tex-Mex cuisine and Fiesta San Antonio? These unique city features, and more, make San Antonio a very attractive setting for meeting attendees.
