The University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine is proud to announce the organizing of the first China Dairy Conference on November 3-4 in Beijing, China. The event is organized in response to the rapid development of Chinese dairy industry and the demand for knowledge and solutions to the complex challenges facing dairy production and management in China. The University of Minnesota has a long history in leading international educational programs. One successful example is, for the first time, bringing the Leman Swine Conference into China in 2012. The past two Leman China Swine Conferences have been very well received by Chinese swine producers and veterinarians.
The College has a strong faculty team engaged in dairy research and extension program. In 2011, the College, in collaboration with its partners, developed and hosted the first ever National Center of Excellence in Dairy Veterinary Medicine. The Center provides advanced training to senior veterinary students focusing on dairy production medicine. Since 1981, the College has been organizing the Minnesota Dairy Health Conference. The mission of the conference is to provide a world-class dairy continuing education event for dairy veterinarians, dairy industry professionals, and dairy producers. The conference's program strives to present the latest developments in dairy management with focus on udder health, reproductive performance and management, transition cow biology and management, youngstock management, and profitability and sustainability. The China Dairy Conference will carry the same mission with specific focus on China helping Chinese dairy producers to make profitable decisions. The roster of speakers include internationally renown researchers with years of service to the dairy industry across the USA and internationally.
