WBC Scientific Programme

The aim of the 2016 scientific programme, which will run over five days, will be the promotion of animal health and welfare as a means of progressing towards a more sustainable agriculture. With particular emphasis on herd health as a means of achieving that goal, our desire is to be consistent and deliver on the major themes of bovine medicine and surgery such as infectious disease, nutrition, husbandry and sustainable production systems.
