2015 Annual Conference 

National Roundtable for Sustainable Aquaculture

Water and the Future of Animal Agriculture

Water. Without doubt the most important and controversial environmental issue on our planet. Water and the Future of Animal Agriculture is the featured topic for the 2015 Annual Conference of the National Institute for Animal Agriculture to be held in Indianapolis, IN in March.  How can production agriculture be as sustainable as it can be? How is animal agriculture impacting water quality? Is fracking affecting water quality for animal agriculture? What water regulations need to be in place or changed?

The conversation NIAA is pursuing at the Annual Conference about water quality, quantity and the operating environment will be dynamic and complex. During the two-day conference there will be presentations and discussions focused on the issues of sustainability, water use, water regulation and water quality as it applies to animal agriculture and its place in the world today and into the future.

Dr. Lonnie King, Dean of The Ohio State College of Veterinary Medicine, joins SwineCast to discuss the outcomes from the 2014 National Institute for Animal Agriculture Symposium "Antibiotic Use and Resistance – Moving Forward Through Shared Stewardship."
How will this meeting affect future discussions and outcomes?
