The Iowa Biotechnology Association (IowaBio) and the Bio Nebraska Life Sciences Association (BioNebraska) have announced plans for their second annual “Animal Health in the Heartland: Ensuring A Safe Food Supply” symposium.

The event will take place July 18-19 in Ames, Iowa.

IowaBio executive director Joe Hrdlicka says outbreaks of diseases such as Avian Influenza and Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus have raised awareness of the significant threats livestock diseases present to the nation’s food supply. He says the animal health symposium will give key federal, state and industry leaders the opportunity to discuss solutions for animal health preparedness.

Brownfield visited with Hrdlicka about this year’s event.
