ADSA announces 2017 annual meeting symposia and workshops

Thanks to the hard work of the ADSA members who submitted proposals, the program committee chairs, and the chairs of the special and invited symposia and workshops, the Overall Program Committee is pleased to present the 2017 Annual Meeting Symposia and Workshop schedule.

The 2017 ADSA Annual Meeting program page has been updated to include the complete lineup of symposia and workshops, by day, along with descriptions of each, confirmed speakers, and presentation topics (if available). We will be updating this page regularly, so please check back often.

Please note that in addition to the six pre-conference symposia and workshops that run on Sunday, late-breaking abstracts will be presented on Sunday afternoon. Post conference symposia will be held Wednesday afternoon (the official meeting ends at noon on Wednesday) and all day Thursday at the Omni William Penn Hotel.

We look forward to your participation in the most comprehensive, global dairy science meeting in the world, June 25 to 29, in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Please be sure to visit the 2017 Annual Meeting website for updates, and help spread the word about this landmark meeting.
