Spots are filling up quickly for the inaugural Animal Nutrition Conference of Canada (ANCC), May 10-11 in Quebec City, as a May 5 deadline for registration at regular pricing fast approaches.

The inaugural ANCC is hosted by the Animal Nutrition Association of Canada (ANAC). The theme of the conference is “Nutritional Strategies to Reduce the Use of Antimicrobials in Animal Production,” featuring insights from leading experts on the latest science and strategies available to drive success.

“We encourage everyone interested to attend and be a part of this important and timely discussion,” says Christian Bruneau of Cargill, Industry Co-Chair of the ANCC Organizing Committee. “Registrations are running out fast so if you haven’t already registered please do so right away. You won’t want to miss the opportunity to capture a wealth of knowledge on this pivotal, paradigm-shifting issue for our industry.”

After May 5 registration is higher and only available on site for any remaining spots. Special conference hotel rates end on May 1.

The new ANCC brings together the former Western Nutrition Conference and Eastern Nutrition Conference into one united national event, featuring top speakers, hot topics and the latest science-based knowledge and progress, along with outstanding discussion and networking opportunities.

The ANCC agenda starts Wednesday, May 10, with a pre-conference symposium, “Antibiotic-Free Livestock (ABF) and Poultry Production: Challenges and Solutions,” sponsored by Biomin America Inc. This symposium covers an overview of ABF livestock and poultry production; nutritional requirements on the immune function of livestock species; nutritional and management challenges and solutions in ABF swine production; raising healthy birds without antibiotics; and a nutritionist’s perspective on antibiotic removal in poultry production.

Wednesday afternoon offers the Opening Plenary featuring a number of leading experts and researchers reporting on the latest scientific perspectives, followed by an evening reception including networking, cocktail dinner, supplier showcase and graduate student poster competition.

The Thursday, May 11, portion of the agenda moves into concurrent monogastric and ruminant sessions covering numerous nutritional angles on the topic of antimicrobial usage and reduction strategies, followed by a Closing Plenary featuring big picture perspectives and key take home messages.

The Animal Nutrition Association of Canada (ANAC) is the national trade association of the livestock and poultry feed industry, with over 170 members including feed and ingredient manufacturers and distributors as well as suppliers of a wide range of goods and services to the feed industry.  Learn about ANAC at www.anacan.org.
