Antibiotic Stewardship: From Metrics to Management

November 3 - 5, 2015 (Tue-Thu)
Crowne Plaza Atlanta Midtown
Atlanta, Georgia

Hosted by: National Institute for Animal Agriculture

Today there is an increased need for stewardship whenever antibiotics are used. Government regulations are calling for aggressive steps toward improved antibiotic use in the human and animal health sectors. However, there is no best practice in measuring success in these efforts. Antibiotics Stewardship: From Metrics to Management will facilitate a discussion between veterinarians, public health officials, the livestock industry, scientists and others involved in food safety and food animal production to develop these metrics in order to keep agriculture moving forward successfully.

2015 ISU James D. McKean Swine Disease Conference

November 5 - 6, 2015 (Thu-Fri)
Ames, Iowa

Hosted by Iowa State University

The 2015 conference has been renamed after the death of longtime conference chair, Dr. James D. McKean, and was previously known as the Annual Swine Disease Conference for Swine Practitioners. The conference focuses on emerging swine pathogens and their control, and improvements in diagnostics and risk-based controls useful for on-farm health plan development. Special emphasis is on information necessary to formulate management plans for disease control, for bio- security, and for food safety enhancement. This year the emphasis is on porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED) and the new challenges for swine veterinarians in better diagnosing and controlling this new disease that has had tremendous impact to the US swine industry.
