The purpose of FAIR 2012 is multifaceted. The main objective is to convene and conduct a national forum to discuss and establish consensus priorities for animal agricultural research, education, and extension activities that can be used by federal research agencies, the allied animal industry, state agencies, and universities. An outcome of the conference will be a document that can be used as a resource for policy makers and others engaged in the common goal to improve and sustain animal agriculture. This document will also be a guide to further enhancement of efficient and sustainable farm animal production systems to meet the growing global demand for food.
USDA/ARS will sponsor the 2012 FAIR conference to be held in Washington, DC - March 4-6, 2012.
