Jan. 30-31, Adams Mark Hotel, Denver — immediately precedes the 2006 Cattle Industry Convention and Trade Show in Denver.
“BVD Control: The Future is Now” is a two-day symposium with the first day designed for researchers, and the second for producers.
- The Jan. 30, 8 a.m.-6:30 p.m., session is focused toward research scientists, veterinarians and lab diagnosticians with an interest in the control and eradication of BVD virus (BVDV). Addressed will be diagnosis and surveillance, control strategies and programs, BVDV vaccines, BVDV’s economic impact, and development and funding of control programs.
- On Jan. 31, from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., a production-level session focuses on what producers and vet practitioners must know to prevent BVD and handle existing herd infections. Scientists, ranchers, cattle feeders and vets will address what what’s needed to design effective control plans, control-plan components, disease costs and the tools needed for control.
