This pandemic showed us that our sector never stops, animal production continues to put food in people’s houses, and we are an essential part of society. In 2022 we will surely be under the economic and societal consequences of this pandemic, and the climate urgency makes challenges in Animal Science more urgent than ever. We, as its scientific community, will be on top and ahead of them.
In this way, the program will cover various areas of knowledge, such as nutrition, genetics, physiology, animal health and welfare, livestock farming systems, precision livestock farming, insect production and use, cattle, horse, pig, sheep, and goat production. These topics are filled with innovation and recent scientific results leading animal production on the right path.
The European Federation of Animal Science (EAAP) Annual Meeting allows applying new ideas in practice through many parallel sessions, a plenary meeting, poster presentations, and discussions about scientific achievements in livestock production worldwide.
We are happy to announce that the abstract submission to the ISVA Virtual Meeting - International Sheep Veterinary Association (23rd-25th November 2021), is now open.
Please visit the Meeting website and submit your abstract.
You are kindly asked to be aware of the important dates.

Participants on remote by video-conference (Zoom)
Opening and introduction: presentation of the platform
The meeting has been opened at 16.30 Paris time.
Jean-Michel Astruc and Cesare Mosconi chaired the meeting and he briefly presented the project, informing of a preliminary meeting with the stakeholders held on 14 November by Zoom. He then introduced the reasons and the role of the stakeholder's platform, and the expected actions. A short presentation of the stakeholders was then introduced together with their range of activity for each of them.
Jean-Michel Astruc briefly summarised the steps that led to the selection of the present stakeholders, how they have been nominated (two surveys followed by email contacts with each of them). Some of them did not accept the role due to many reasons (insufficient number of staff, lack of funding, lack of specific competences, ….) and at the end 17 national and 8 trans-national stakeholders have been identified plus the 3 support stakeholders for a total of 28 organisations/companies, both academic, public or from private sector.

The first SMARTER annual meeting will be held in Edinburgh from 26th to 27th November 2019. One year after the start of the project, the meeting will aim to take stock of the work done during the first year, discuss the first results obtained and plan the actions to be carried out for the future.
Stakeholders meetings and farm visits are planned from 28th to 29th November 2019.

Between September 19-21, 2018 the LXXXIII scientific meeting of Polish Society of Animal Production entitled “Challenges of animal husbandry in sustainable agriculture conditions” took place in Lublin (south-eastern Poland). The main organizer of the conference was the University of Life Science in Lublin, Faculty of Biology, Animal Sciences and Bioeconomy. There was also a meeting of the section goat and sheep rearing and breeding during the conference. Twenty-five people took part in this meeting.
Board members of the International Goat Association (IGA) attended the 2017 National Symposium on Sheep and Goat and the 7th Member Meeting of Sheep and Goat Branch of the Chinese Association of Animal Science and Veterinary Medicine from August 18 to 21, 2017 at Shijiazhuang, China. A total of 14 Board members, the Executive Director, and members of the advisory board from different areas of the world met together to discuss further development of the Association. Great appreciation was expressed to Dr. Yingjie Zhang, Professor of the Agricultural University of Hebei, President of the Sheep and Goat Branch of the Animal Science and Veterinary Medicine, and his student Ms. Xuejiao Yin for their dedication to organizing the trip.
The International Goat Association promotes goat research and development for the benefit of humankind, to alleviate poverty, to promote prosperity and to improve the quality of life.
