(American Meat Institute)

The AMI Foundation (AMIF) Animal Care and Handling Conference for the Food Industry, the leading animal welfare education opportunity for meat companies, will feature a number of new sessions this year in an effort to satisfy an array of attendee needs. The conference will be held October 17-18, 2012, at the Westin Crown Center, Kansas City, Missouri.

The conference includes three focused tracks: Management and Policy, Applied Pig Handling and Applied Cattle Handling.

The Management and Policy Track is ideal for those responsible for “big picture” management of animal handling and welfare. The track will address key strategies for managing changing needs and trends, including the impact of consumer perspectives on animal welfare.

The Applied Pig Handling and Applied Cattle Handling tracks offer attendees in-depth instruction by species. Leading academic experts in the field will offer instruction at a range of levels – from beginner to advanced. Their presentations will be complemented by practical insights from industry experts.

Registration fees for those registering by September 6, 2012 are $475 for members, and $415 when three or more members register together. After September 6, registration rates increase to $525 for members, and $465 when three or more members register together. Registration is $825 for nonmembers.
