Mini-Symposium on Artificial Intelligence and Animal Health

Modern farming methods are moving towards intelligent, enclosed, and automated monitoring systems for raising poultry and livestock. This transformation can increase productivity (both yield and quality), save labor, reduce disease transmission through containment, mitigate temperature stress and pathogen proliferation, and enable more comprehensive data collection on farming practices. Additionally, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is widely applied to intelligent livestock farming, offering capabilities such as disease diagnosis, early warning, and even treatment. AI also aids in establishing standardized farming management models, helping farmers to manage breeding risks. This includes digitizing and intelligentizing livestock production and management, sampling, sensing, and monitoring environmental chemicals and pathogens, automatically sensing and monitoring physiological data in poultry and livestock for optimizing growth and reproductive efficiency, enhancing animal health and pathogen prevention strategies, applying Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) devices in livestock farming, and utilizing big data for storage, analysis, and digitization.

Organized by the Chinese Society of Animal Science and the World's Poultry Science Association - Taiwan Branch, the 4th Animal Precision Nutrition International Forum will be held on September 10, 2024, at the 5th floor of the Taipei Nangang Exhibition (TaiNEX) Hall 1.


The previous edition, the 3rd Animal Precision Nutrition Forum, successfully attracted 287 professionals from 7 countries in the livestock industries (including feed, agricultural enterprises, and livestock farmers), featuring 14 heavyweight topics. Speakers from precision nutrition fields were invited to discuss and share their research and achievements, working together to achieve a sustainable future for animal husbandry.


We are collaboratively organizing the Precision Animal Nutrition annual event by merging the two major animal husbandry associations in Taiwan - Chinese Society of Animal Science and World's Poultry Science Association - Taiwan Branch. This gathering covers the industry's latest trends, focusing on the four hottest topics in animal nutrition. On the same evening, a Gala Dinner provides a unique opportunity to network and exchange ideas with industry and academic elites.
