For more than 100 years, NIAA has convened animal agriculture leaders to explore our sector’s most pressing questions and issues. The 2023 conference theme and agenda provide the opportunity to engage with visionary leaders as, together, we explore their insights into the future of animal agriculture.

The Annual Conference will feature dynamic speakers and panelists as we explore, discuss, learn, and develop knowledge that fosters interdisciplinary cooperation with our colleagues from across all aspects of the food system. Confirmed speakers, panelists and moderators include:
