Held Virtually

Held virtually, our conference in 2022 took on a new form again running over three full days and included an additional two days of lunch and learn session held the week before on March 8 and 10. The theme was “PREP for Livestock Emergencies” which made our keynote, Dr. Rebecca (Gimenez) Husted a perfect fit. Participants heard real life stories of livestock emergencies and how they were dealt with from producers spanning across several provinces, took in workshops and panels, and students were also able to take in the Meet The Experts event.

 

This year, our Awards of Distinction were consolidated into only one award – with the nominees showing excellence in any one of the three categories. We would like to congratulate Dr. Brenda Ralston on winning the 2022 Award of Distinction.
