More than 3,000 participants from around the world are expected to attend, making the meeting a major scientific hub for individuals in the global animal science community.

The scientific program includes nearly 1,800 abstracts to be presented. View the JAM program to see the multitude of scientific presentations, symposia, poster sessions, and student competitions that make this conference one of the most comprehensive animal science meetings of the year. The Abstract book also is available.

There are also a multitude of social events and awards ceremonies where participants can catch up with other animal scientists. The JAM Opening Session and Opening BBQ that follows will blend returning JAM favorites like the Battle of the Brats and Big Scoop Competition with new features, including AnimalX TED-style talks and the launch of a JAM Instagram contest. In addition, the respective societies will host award ceremonies to honor scientists making notable contributions to their field of animal science.

We hope you will be joining us for this week of collaboration and celebration of animal science.
