Annual meeting of the British Society of Animal Science (BSAS): 16-17 April 2013, Nottingham University, Jubilee Campus.

In April 2013 I attended for the time the annual BSAS meeting at Nottingham University were I presented some of the results of my undergraduate research project. I volunteered as a technical assistant for the duration of the conference.


Limited resources, changing climates, the need for sustainable production systems and an ever-discerning public means feeding the world’s growing population is not an easy task. To tackle the challenge, global agriculture has to look beyond its traditional practices and adopt a wide range of the latest techniques and technologies available to them. This conference ooks at how innovative approaches to using bio-technology can help the world’s food producers reach their goals. Covering the full range of animal and veterinary science issues, the event gives researchers, teachers, students, vets and policy-makers to hear about the latest developments in animal science and technology.
