Each year, National Institute for Animal Agriculture's annual meeting brings together producers, veterinarians, business executives, scientists, academicians, state and federal regulatory officials and other stakeholders in the animal food and fiber industry.

It's a time to discuss the latest issues in animal agriculture. This year's event will focus on Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning – Applying a Full-Court Press for Animal Agriculture. That program will take place April 6.

The complete dates for NIAA's 2006 Annual Meeting are April 3-6; it will be held at the Galt House Hotel and Suites in Louisville, Ky. 

The event also will feature NIAA committees, which will present 12 information-packed seminars addressing a variety of issues affecting animal agriculture today.
Keynote presentations by several pre-eminent agricultural leaders, and general sessions will round out the schedule.

NIAA’s mission is to provide a forum for building consensus and advancing solutions for animal agriculture and to provide continuing education and communication linkages for animal agriculture professionals, says Glenn Slack, NIAA chief executive officer.

More information on the 2006 NIAA Annual Meeting, including registration, hotel and sponsorship information, will soon be available on the Internet at www.animalagriculture.org, or by calling (270) 782-9798.
