New Location

We will be moving to a new venue in 2020 as part of an effort to provide even higher quality continuing education. We will be meeting on March 13-15, 2020 at the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine (AUCVM) Vet Education Center. This is a big change, as we have met at the Alabama 4-H Center in Columbiana, AL for the past 28 years. While we all have very fond memories of this venue, due to it’s increasing popularity it has become more difficult to schedule activities there. We are also very limited with the quantity and type of wet-labs we can offer at the 4-H Center. Despite moving to a new venue, we still plan to host a steak dinner followed by the always popular Downie Awards and Practice Tips on Saturday evening.

Friday Only - Joint Conference with Veterinarians and Beef Cattle Producers

Another exciting change is that the inaugural Bob Carson Beef Cattle Symposium will be part of the conference on Friday afternoon, March 13 (only). The Bob Carson Beef Cattle Symposium is a way to pay tribute to a man that meant so much to so many. The symposium will be held jointly with the Auburn University Department of Animal Sciences Beef Cattle Conference and the ALVMA 29th Annual Conference for Food Animal Veterinarians. This will be a great opportunity to mingle with not just your veterinary colleagues but also, your producer clients.

Saturday - Veterinarians Only

On Saturday, the veterinarians will remain on campus to attend quality CE sessions and visit with exhibitors. Since some traditions should remain the same, Saturday evening will allow attendees to enjoy the annual Steak Dinner while mingling with friends, colleagues and exhibitors. Attendees are encouraged to stay and take part in the ever-popular Downie Awards where everyone shares their favorite stories and the crowd determines who the new Downie is awarded to.

Sunday - Round Robin Wet-Labs

On Sunday, after a small devotional, attendees will meet at the J.T. Vaughan Equine Teaching Hospital for the inaugural Dwight Wolfe Wet Lab Symposium. This will consist of three rotating rounds of wet-labs including Bull Breeding Soundness Evaluations and Current Trich Testing, Bovine Reproductive Ultrasound and Large Animal Ultrasound.
