About the Event

Based on the impact of COVID-19, the safety of the attendees and global health recommendations regarding large, in-person gatherings the Animal Care and Handling Conference has transitioned to a virtual event this year.

With the meat and poultry industry processing 32 million cattle, 126 million hogs, 2 million sheep and lamb, and 237 million turkeys in 2018, animal handling issues are vitally important to our industry and the success of our businesses. From in-depth instruction by species to “big picture” sessions that address key strategies for managing the changing needs and trends, including the impact of consumer expectation on animal welfare, the Animal Care and Handling Conference for the Food Industry offers instruction at a range of levels from leading academic and industry experts.
