Mid-Atlantic Nutrition Conference
April 7 @ 9:00 am - April 8 @ 4:00 pm
The Mid-Atlantic Nutrition Conference (formerly the Maryland Nutrition Conference) is recognized as a premier educational event for the animal nutrition industry. Local, national, and international nutritionists share new, innovative, and practical research being conducted at universities, in industry and at government institutions. Regulatory issues and future opportunities are discussed. The program has historically been focused on poultry, dairy, and equine nutrition. In 2019 a Companion Animal session was added, and we are looking forward to piloting a Sheep and Goat session in 2020!
