We are excited to provide details about a Research Technology Symposium taking place at the 2017 ASAS-CSAS Annual Meeting & Trade Show! This full-day symposium, focused on ruminant and grazing research, is scheduled for Monday, July 10.

The goal of the Research Technology Symposium is to use up-to-date and engaging speakers to educate our scientists on the latest technological practices being used in ruminant and grazing research. The symposium was introduced to the program by the Ruminant Nutrition committee, and the overall effort was spear headed by Dr. Beth Kegley (Overall Vice-Chair of the 2017 Meeting).
