UC-Davis hosts NPLC

ucdroses.jpgLots of initials, but the University of California-Davis hosted attendees at the annual meeting of the National Pedigreed Livestock Council this week in Sacramento. After the business sessions, the Veterninary Genetics Lab staff at UCD took us on a tour of the DNA lab, the equine performance research facility and the goat studies area. It was a gorgeous day and the scenery was accented by this colorful driveway near the lab.

The NPLC is an organization of executive officers of the various nonprofit breed associations of dairy, horse and pony, sheep, goat, swine and beef species. Our program included updates on livestock genomics, association management, the future relevance of breed associations and discussions of legal issues relating to patents and intellectual property.
