28th AI Vets Congress - Aranjuez
The AI Vets Congress is an annual congress organized by the Work Group RepVet. The Work Group consists of veterinarians from European Artificial Insemination (AI) Companies in cattle, small ruminants and pigs. The Work Group RepVet is part of EFFAB, the European branch organisation for farm animal breeding and reproduction, whose aim is to promote the interests of its members at European level (i.e. legislation).
The AI Vets Congress is a meeting point for European technicians, experts and public and private companies involved in AI activities in livestock. Objectives of the congress are to give participants the opportunity to meet partners, colleagues and fellows and to share experiences, needs and concerns about AI in the EU and between the EU and Third Countries. In the congress, talks and workshops are oriented to those new developments and concepts that may directly or indirectly influence the daily work in your organization within the scope of the EU legislation.
Every year a different European city hosts the AI Vets Congress. The XXVIII edition will be held in Aranjuez, a city that saw Anibal’s army fighting against the Carpetans, developed by Muslim Umayyads and re-conquered by Christian Kings in 1178. Aranjuez is a mixture of cultures over the Tajo river in which only courtiers of the Spanish crown could live until 1752. A majestic city for a congress for history.
