AABP Research Summaries Graduate Student Awards

Research projects having direct application to the health, welfare and productivity of cattle are being solicited for presentation at the Research Summaries (oral presentations) and Scientific Poster Sessions for the Annual Conference of the AABP. Project summaries focused on all areas of bovine health, welfare and production are welcome including pharmacology, epidemiology, medicine, surgery, economic analysis, pathology, pre-harvest food safety, diagnostics, and health monitoring. Projects may be broadly applicable to the cattle industry or more specifically applicable to the beef or dairy industry.
