9:45 - 10 a.m. - Break

10 - 11 a.m. - Dr. Barry Bradford, associate professor of animal sciences and industry from Kansas State University’s Presidential Lecture Series, will present “Technology in Animal Agriculture: Frankenfoods or Solution to Hunger?” A wide range of technologies, including pharmaceuticals, recombinant proteins, assisted reproductive techniques, modern genetics, and probiotics are used to improve production efficiencies in animal agriculture. A number of these technologies raise concerns among consumers, yet few understand the issues involved. This presentation will discuss the logical framework that is used to evaluate technologies for use in animal agriculture, the regulatory process by which new technologies are evaluated and the tradeoffs between very broad or very limited use of such technologies.
