2017 Leman Swine Conference

2017 Allen D. Leman Swine Conference
Conversations throughout the Allen D. Leman Conference honored and mourned Dr. Bob Morrison with his family and the other families affected by the accident in March of this year, which took their lives. The conference-opening tribute by University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine Dean Trevor Ames, and Dr. Gordon Sponk, was a fitting reminder of Dr. Morrison's impact on a generation and industry.

The program for Monday and Tuesday conference were centered on moving information from researchers to producers, and vice-versa. It’s one of the reasons this conference has such a widely regarded international presence.
