First International Animal Health, Genetics and Nutrition Congress
THE first livestock marketing, scientific, and academic exhibition of its kind commenced today. The conveners of the congress are the Philippine Veterinary Drug Association (PVDA) and the Philippine Swine Industry Research and Development Foundation, Inc., (PSIRDFI). The theme for this congress is "Food Safety and Quality through Better Animal Health, Genetics and Nutrition." The Congress is a biennial joint project of the two organizations and is scheduled for the next three days at the Philippine International Convention Center.

Dubbed Farmers’ Congress, the event will bring under one roof the latest advances in swine and poultry management, genetics development, and nutrition technologies and equipment. Highlight of the gathering is the Farmers Pavilion exhibit that will showcase the latest technological advances in the swine and poultry industry in the country and the region.

The Congress will also have several education sessions where Filipino and foreign experts will present technical papers and seminars on feeds, veterinary medication, genetics, and diseases. Leading practitioners from Europe will discuss trends in piglet nutrition, artificial insemination, and farm system technologies. The attending farm owners and managers, feed millers and suppliers, the media, academics, and student researchers will be provided networking opportunities. The Congress will culminate in a live boar auction sale to be held in cooperation with the International Training Center for Pig Husbandry (ITCPH).

How difficult was it to transition yourself from learning nutrition in college to applying it to your career? I am halfway through my college career and majoring in Nutrition. I don't always feel confident that I am in the right field. Please tell me about your experiences! Did you feel prepared for your career after college?
