Proceedings of the Annual Conference

The proceedings presently consist of between 60-80 articles published in an A4 soft cover volume. The articles contributed are formal written papers, which have been refereed and subsequently revised. All articles have previously been presented at the annual conference. Space limitations apply to the length of the published articles. Distinguished overseas or New Zealand speakers are commissioned to give the Landcorp Farming Limited Lecture and the Living Legend Address on topics of relevance to Animal Production.

Historically, the proceedings have covered a wide variety of topics and species that are of interest to New Zealand farming. The majority of articles relate to sheep, dairy cattle, beef cattle, deer, goats and horses. Papers on fibre and meat production, growth physiology, genetics, reproduction, lactational physiology and animal health are normally the major subject headings.
