Veterinarians that work with pigs make important and global contribution to society by ensuring adequate and safe food is available, while still maintaining the health and welfare of pigs. In addition, pig veterinarians are extending the scope and delivery of veterinary science by becoming involved in training programs for pig producers, quality assurance programs, and establishing and managing production systems and global disease prevention.

This years Australian Pig Veterinarians Virtual Conference brings together the profession with 7 hours of high quality CPD and delves into the questions encountered in the veterinary practice and industry today. It is an event not to be missed and offers a flexible and on-demand virtual format.

On-demand videos of the entire conference will be available for registered delegates until 23 March 2022. Please be logged in to watch the talks.
