Herd Health: PCV2 dominates the IPVS 2008 conference in Durban

Some highlights from last June’s International Pig Veterinary Society Congress in South Africa last June, which attracted a record attendance and a proliferation of papers


Last June, the 20th IPVS (International Pig Veterinary Society) Congress was held in Durban, South Africa, the first time the IPVS has been on the African continent. The congress was a resounding success with many “firsts” and records to its name.
The total attendance of 2,146 from 52 countries was a record for an IPVS conference outside Europe. It is also the first time that attendance at an IPVS outside Europe has reached the 2,000 mark.
