The organizing committee is pleased to announce the 1st International Symposium on Bison Health. This symposium will focus specifically on health and disease issues impacting the commercial bison industry but will include important information on the health of public herds.
We have put together a dynamic group of speakers and a program that we believe will offer veterinarians and students, animal scientists, government officials, bison producers, and anyone else interested in bison health issues, the opportunity to discuss, debate and learn about the current and emerging health issues facing the bison industry.
Veterinary experts and scientists from across North America will give the benefit of their practice experience and present their latest research findings during the invited presentations.
Topics may include:
• Viral diseases (eg. BVD, MCF)
• Bacterial diseases (eg. Brucellosis, TB, anthrax)
• Mycoplasma bovis and respiratory disease
• Reproduction technology
• Nutrition, mineral programs
• Preventative programs (parasite control, vaccines)
• Therapeutics and rational treatment of bison disease
The symposium program is designed to:
• provide background history and context for modern bison farming and conservation
• inform participants about selected bison health issues and production management practices
• feature the latest research findings in bison disease research
• offer expert predictions on future bison health topics and directions for the bison industry.
The host city of Saskatoon offers natural beauty and recreational opportunities. Situated on the banks of the South Saskatchewan River, Saskatoon has an active arts community with many art galleries, boutique shopping, challenging golf courses, and good locally-owned restaurants serving fresh local cuisine.
