This online conference shares unique knowledge on ration-planning, sustainable and regional feeding for pigs and poultry, and welfare selfassessment tools. It includes a policy debate targeting a wide range of audiences including policy makers, farmers and animal welfare associations, processors, feed companies and retailers. This last part might not be of interest for farmers in Mzansi, but we’re sure there will be many other things to learn during this online conference!

Agricultural and biological science 

The International Conference on Agricultural and Biological Science (ICABS) will provide an opportunity for global participants to share their ideas and experience in person, with their peers expected to join from different parts of the world. In addition, this gathering will help delegates to establish research or business relations as well as to find international linkages for future collaborations in their career path. 

Find out more about this international conference on their website.
