2018 Leman Swine Conference

2018 Allen D. Leman Swine Conference
Top conversations were about African Swine Fever (ASF) with focus on the specifics of the virus, how it can be spread, and specific actions being taken by industry. Key ASF presentations were released early to get the information into your hands [playlist].

The first one to watch is by Dr. Chris Oura (Professor of Veterinary Virology, School of Veterinary Medicine Faculty of Medical Sciences, The University of the West Indies, Trinidad and Tobago). Dr. Oura explains what we know about the African Swine Fever (ASF) virus, what the associated clinical signs are, and the various paths of transmission [presentation].

The program for the Pre-Conference Sessions and the Monday and Tuesday conference also had information for researchers to producers on production, diagnostics, research, and disease prevention. It’s one of the reasons this conference has such a widely regarded international presence.

All the 2018 Leman conference presentations will be published on this ConferenceConnection page. To get the latest on the 2018 Leman presentations, subscribe to the SwineCast update [subscribe].
