2019 National Genetics Conference
line
Sponsored by ZOETIS and HOLSTEIN ASSOCIATION USA

June 26 & 27, 2019 - Appleton, Wisconsin

The 2019 National Genetics Conference was held in conjunction with the 2019 National Holstein Convention, bringing together thought leaders in the dairy industry from around the world to advance dairy cattle genetics.

It’s been a decade since genomics came on the scene in April 2009 and speakers reviewed what we have learned, examined where we are today, and addressed what the future might bring. Below you will find each of the presentations from the conference.

Videos of all the presentations will be posted
