AASV 2016

The 2016 Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedca, Inc. (BIVI) pre-AASV seminar, held Feb. 26 prior to the American Association of Swine Veterinarians (AASV) Annual Meeting, followed the theme of “Start Healthy. End Strong – Learning from Outside the Pen.” The event featured experts from across animal agriculture, sharing their knowledge and learnings with swine practitioners.
