Conference - Scientific Sessions
The organising team is delighted to invite you to the Conference on Lameness in Ruminants. The Conference will be held over 3 days, bringing together world experts in cattle health, production systems, animal behaviour and hoof care. Participants will improve their knowledge on hoof health and thus be able to enlarge their field of activity.
The Scientific Sessions run from September 7th to 9th 2017 at
