2017 ASAS-CSAS Meeting

The city of Baltimore, MD (USA) hosted the 2017 annual meetings and symposia of the American Society of Animal Science (ASAS) and the Canadian Society of Animal Science (CSAS) from 8-12 July. CSAS was well represented at the event with two symposia, our AGM, grad student competitions, awards nights, and numerous presenters.


Student Competitions

CSAS grad student oral and poster presenters competed on 9 July 2017 at the Baltimore meeting. Once again, all presenters did an excellent job of sharing their results, and the presentations were well received by judges and conference delegates alike. A full list of winners can be found on the CSAS website. Attendance at both competitions was very good.
