On behalf of Chinese Association of Animal Science and Veterinary Medicine (CAAV), I would like to invite you for the 11th World Conference on Animal Production (11th WCAP) which will be held in Beijing during October 15-20, 2013.
China raises more than 20% of the world people by using 7% of earth terrestrial area. Meat production in China is in the top level in the world. The amount of Chinese pigs, sheep, chicken, ducks are taken the largest percentage of the world livestock. China localizes in the North Temperate Zone, characterized by a typical continental climate and distinctive four seasons. Numerous regional domestic animals with unique genotypes represent the local environmental characteristics. This populous country has created such a huge consuming market that attracts the world agricultural industries.

CAAV established in 1936 which has a history of 76 years, aiming in driving forward of national and international communication and cooperation of animal production researchers.
