The Animal Care and Handling Conference for the Food Industry is the leading animal welfare educational opportunity for meat companies, their customers and those involved in the production and management of livestock and meat products. This important conference has doubled in size since it was launched in 1999 – testament to the increasing significance of animal care and handling in the meat industry.

Why should you attend?

This highly-rated conference offers a variety of professional development. Nearly a dozen associations and organizations have teamed this year to create a program that satisfies an array of attendee needs.

The Applied Pig Handling and Applied Cattle Handling tracks offer attendees in-depth instruction by species. Leading academic experts in the field will offer instruction at a range of levels – from beginner to advanced. Their presentations will be complemented by practical insights from industry experts.
