The National Beef Cattle Evaluation Consortium (NBCEC) is planning a Dec. 11-12 symposium on animal health. Set for Kansas City's Downtown Marriott, participants will discuss genetic variation in disease incidence, the relationship of stress (from alternative management practices) with risk of disease, and the association of behavior and risk of disease.
