Dear colleagues and friends,

We are pleased to announce the Bovine Respiratory Disease Symposium (BRDS) 2014: New Approaches to Bovine Respiratory Disease Prevention, Management and Diagnosis to be held at the Renaissance Denver Hotel in Denver, Colorado, USA from July 30th to July 31st, 2014.  This meeting will be held in conjunction with the 2014 Summer Academy of Veterinary Consultants (AVC) meeting which will be held July 31st to August 2nd, 2014.

Bovine Respiratory Disease (BRD) is a leading cause of sickness and death for cattle and calves in North America.  However, new discoveries are providing improved opportunities for BRD prevention and control.  BRDS 2014 will bring together scientists, educators, veterinarians in the field, producers, and policy makers to discuss how the latest BRD research findings and emerging management technologies can be translated into industry practice to improve the health of beef and dairy cattle.

The symposium will feature a balance of presentations by scientists and veterinary consultants working with BRD, with ample time for discussion between the audience and the speakers after each session.  A scientific poster session for researchers working on BRD will be held the first night of the conference.

Registration is open.  Please click on the Registration tab to the left for more information.
