About the conference


We are delighted to announce that the 17th International Symposium and 9th International Conference on Lameness in Ruminants, hosted by the University of Bristol, School of Veterinary Sciences, will be held from the 11th to the 14th August 2013 at the Bristol Marriott City Centre Hotel

The Symposium theme is Lameness in Ruminants: Past, Present and Future. The programme will:

  • review what we have learnt about lameness so far,
  • bring together the most current information about lameness control methods with particular emphasis on evidence based treatment, and
  • look to the future where Knowledge Exchange and On-farm Extension are going to play an important role in helping farmers to control this problem.
