The specialty conference brought together animal reproduction researchers. Equine topics included biofilms, reproductive biosecurity, embryo biopsies, and more.

The 2014 American College of Theriogenologists (ACT) Conference is taking place in downtown Portland, Oregon, Aug. 6-10.

Recognized by the American Veterinary Medical Association in 1971, the ACT focuses on the advancement of knowledge and competence; undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate education; research; and clinical service in theriogenology, which is the study of animal reproduction.

Each year, leading reproduction researchers and clinicians in the veterinary community meet at the ACT conference (“Therio Conference”) to present and discuss new findings in their specialty field. Species covered include small animals, camelids, cattle, and horses. The conference’s equine tract takes place Aug. 8-9 and covers topics such as equine viral arteritis, running a reproduction practice, endometritis in mares, and reproductive biosecurity.
