Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing and Scientific Committees, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to the National Congress of the Animal Science and Production Association that will be held in Perugia (Italy) on June 13th-16th, 2017.

After 32 years, we are honored to host once again this important and prestigious event. Umbria is a small region with a long-lasting tradition in animal science and production. The Congress is a result of the precious collaboration among the Department of Agricultural, Food and Environmental Sciences and the Department of the Veterinary Medicine of the University of Perugia and other Italian scientific Institutions such as the University of Ancona, Camerino, Viterbo and CREA PCM (Rome).

Our aim is to promote valuable scientific contents and knowledge exchange, combining the latest developments with the traditional aspects of animal production and encouraging dialogue between participants with different backgrounds and experience operating in the animal science and production field. Scientific Sessions, including the Main Lectures, the Oral and the Poster Sessions will be held at the Hotel Giò Congress Centre, just a few minutes away from the main city attractions.

Participating in the ASPA 2017 Congress will be a great opportunity to meet colleagues and scientists, as well as to explore Perugia and its surroundings and enjoy Umbrian hospitality.


We look forward to seeing you all in Perugia!


Emiliano Lasagna
