Southern Section call for abstracts

Abstracts due by 11:59 Central, October 2, 2013

All abstracts must be submitted electronically online at

Instructions for submitting the abstract are available on the website. Once you initiate an abstract submission a login ID and password will be sent to you via email. Make a note of these, they will allow you to revise your submitted abstract at any time before the deadline. After the deadline it will not be possible to submit abstracts.

Submission Restrictions: Due to space restrictions, submissions are limited. Space limitations allow a maximum of 400 words. Abstracts that are too long will be rejected automatically by the system. It is recommended that all abstract components (title, body, and table) be copied directly from a word processing file. The formatting and special characters will carry over directly into the abstract system.

Section Preferences/Topics:

  • Breeding and Genetics
  • Physiology
  • Ruminant Animal Production
    Graduate Student Competition
  • Small Ruminant Production
  • Teaching and Undergraduate Education
    Pastures and Forages
  • Undergraduate Student Competition

If your abstract includes a table please limit the table to a maximum of 10 columns and 15 rows; keep this in mind when formatting the table. Tables that are too wide are not printable, and will be removed from the abstract at the production stage. Please note: In order to maintain the proper structure of your table please create it in Word using the table function.

After reading these instructions, if you have any questions regarding submission, contact Jennifer Gavel, ASAS Program Director, at
