Details of the IASTA Annual Conference 2013 have just been announced. This year’s event will take place in the Athlone Springs Hotel on Saturday March 2nd 2013. It promises to be a conference that will provide a broad range of stimulating educational activities from which you can choose. There are workshops on sheep management, genetics and a visit to an integrated pig unit. A full timetable of events has therefore been scheduled to allow for a number of formal presentations and events, mixed with opportunities to network and socialise.
